NACCHO Preparedness Summit: "Fixing Our Fault Lines: Addressing Systemic Vulnerabilities"

Dallas, Texas
event site

The National Association of County & City Health Officials (NACCHO) will host the 2020 Preparedness Summit at the Hilton Anatole Hotel in Dallas. Disasters and emergencies expose the fault lines in our nation’s health security. In these times of crisis, the vulnerabilities that exist in individual and community, infrastructure, health, and environmental systems intersect and become intensified – especially for the most at-risk communities. A whole and fully functioning national security system is only as strong as its weakest component. This year’s theme, "Fixing Our Fault Lines: Addressing Systemic Vulnerabilities," will focus on methods to identify systemic weaknesses and highlight tools and policies that can empower all communities, and particularly the ones that are most vulnerable, to address those weaknesses and become more resilient. The summit offers a unique learning and networking opportunity for current and aspiring emergency management, public health, and healthcare professionals, and their partners, to share perspectives and engage in dialogue on key public health preparedness and response issues. As the first and longest running national preparedness conference, the Preparedness Summit is the best place for you to gain the knowledge, resources, and relationships necessary to prepare for and respond to public health emergencies.
