The National Association of Community Health Centers is pleased to announce that it has joined a distinguished group of partners on the Preparedness Summit Planning Committee. The Summit is the premier national conference in the field of public health preparedness. The four-day annual event provides one of the only cross-disciplinary learning opportunities in the field and has evolved over time to meet the growing needs of the preparedness community. Each year, attendance at the Summit has continued to grow, and in 2013, the Summit brought 1,741 attendees to Atlanta from nearly every state and several countries.
This year’s Summit will take place April 1—4, 2014 in Atlanta, Georgia. The theme is “Stronger Together: Aligning Public Health and Healthcare Preparedness Capabilities to Protect Our Communities.” Join the distinguished list of Preparedness Summit presenters and submit an abstract for the 2014 Preparedness Summit today. Health centers and Primary Care Associations are strongly encouraged to submit an abstract to highlight the strong and proud history of meeting the needs of their communities, before, during, and after emergencies. Abstracts are being accepted until October 11. Visit www.preparednesssummit.org to learn more.
