Keynote Panel: A Public Health Discussion on Disaster Preparedness, Response, and Long-term Recovery

Panel members: Dr. Jeff Burgess, Dr. Laura Bakkensen, and Dr. Patricia Haynes

Learn more about the Keynote Panel Members

Disasters have wide-ranging effects that impact local, national, and global communities. Each phase of a disaster presents unique challenges and requires specific tools, strategies and resources to address the resiliency and recovery of the impacted community. Typically, the mass media covers the immediate disaster, but does not focus on each component of the disaster response including before the disaster (e.g., emergency preparedness) and after the disaster (e.g., long-term recovery). We encourage all interested parties to join us and our distinguished panel members as we discuss the roles individuals, groups, and agencies may play in disaster preparedness, immediate response and long-term recovery in the context of recent as well as future events.
