Drexel Helps Integrate Pediatric Practices in Disaster Preparedness

Dr. Esther Chernak and Mr. Tom Hipper, of the Center for Public Health Readiness and Communication at the Drexel University School of Public Health, recently collaborated with the Pennsylvania Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics to develop a strategic plan and recommendations for better integrating community pediatric practices into disaster preparedness in Pennsylvania. Dr. Chernak presented the project's findings and plan at an Institute of Medicine (IOM) Workshop, “Preparedness, Response, and Recovery Considerations for Children and Families”, in June 2013. The IOM published a summary report of this workshop last month.
