Volume 125 Public Health Reports Supplement 5: Public Health Preparedness

January 26, 2011

On Tuesday, February 1, 2011, Public Health Reports is offering a live webcast addressing past, present, and future efforts to train current and future public health workforce to respond to all-hazards events. The webcast, "Are we prepared? Lessons learned from the last decade of preparedness education and a look to the future," is drawn from the November/December 2010 Supplement of Public Health Reports.

In that supplement, NWCPHP's Jack Thompson, along with Bernard Turnock and Edward Baker served as guest editors. Their guest editorial focused on the impacts and lessons learned from the CDC Centers for Public Health Preparedness program that was active from 2000 to 2010.

Thompson (NWCPHP, University of Washington), Baker (University of North Carolina), and Turnock (University of Illinois - Chicago) will discuss some of the broad issues raised in the supplement and examine ways to put yesterday's lessons to work to enhance the nation's ability to respond to public health crises.

The Public Health Reports webcast will be held from 1:00–2:15 p.m. EST (10:00 a.m. Pacific) and certified in public health continuing education credits will be offered. Space is limited. Reserve your webcast seat now.
