Participants will also learn how to adopt the framework and philosophy into current public health preparedness training programs.
By the end of this session participants will be able to:
- List the three principles of I-JITT
- Define the three principles of I-JITT
- Describe how to integrate the I-JITT model into local health department operations

Hot Topics in Preparedness (known throughout the region as HTIP or Hot Topics) is sponsored by Northwest Center for Public Health Practice (NWCPHP) to provide an authoritative hour-long forum each month for discussing topics that are important to the public health practice community. They focus on the six states in the region (Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, Wyoming) and the tribal health units (coordinated through the Northwest Portland Area Indian Health Board). While many of the topics are specific to the public health community, they are also relevant to Network Members of NN/LM.
