Preference will be given for National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NN/LM) members from the Greater Midwest and the MidContinental Regions.

CE Class: U.S. Response to Disasters and Public Health Emergencies - provides an introduction to disaster/emergency planning and response as conducted in the U.S, with an emphasis on medical response. To determine where disaster information specialists might best fit into the US framework for disaster/emergency response, it is necessary to start with shared understanding of terminology, concepts, legislation, organizations, and lessons learned from previous incidents. The class describes efforts to provide structure and order before, during, and after emergencies and disasters. Changes over time in legislation and the US framework for disaster/emergency response are discussed using examples from 9/11, Hurricane Katrina, and the Haiti earthquake. This course is a required class for the Disaster Information Specialization (DIS) Program and participants will earn 3 MLA CE contact hours for the DIS program.

1:30 CT Thursday, March 7, 2013--Part 2 only

Note: If you wish to attend the entire Summit, you must register for all three parts.
