COVID-19: Disaster Preparedness and Vulnerable Populations: Webinar Series @ Webinar
Jul 1 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am
This Workshop Series is aimed at exploring issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic and disaster preparedness for special populations.

About this serial event

COVID-19 raises questions regarding disaster preparedness for vulnerable populations. Three roundtables/forums within HMD (Forum on Medical Preparedness; Forum on Aging, Disability, and Independence; Roundtable on the Promotion of Health Equity) propose a series of three one-hour webinars on this topic. The first webinar focuses on disaster planning and response activities that meet the needs of the whole community. The second webinar focuses on home health workers providing services to individuals living with disabilities and older adults. The third webinar considers the needs of individuals living with disabilities and older adults and efforts to include these populations in disaster planning.
