This Conference will help participants-- understand public health consequences frequently seen in disasters and public health emergencies; understand functional and/or access needs of those who are medically vulnerable in a low resource disaster setting; learn about just-in-time resources in the event of a disaster; understand strategies that may potentially better address the standard of care at disaster sites; explore strategies for increasing the resilience of individuals and communities affected by a disaster; and understand the challenges of practice and policy in public health.
