Businesses and Health Security: The Bottom Line on Preparedness

Join experts from the business and health communities and leaders of the National Health Security Preparedness Index for a conversation about how health security issues like disasters and disease epidemics impact the U.S. economy and can influence key business decisions. This highly interactive discussion will highlight how private sector leaders can utilize the latest health security information to support their bottom lines and community preparedness.

The webinar will also provide real-life examples of company policies that support a healthy workforce, minimize the impact of unplanned absences, and help businesses quickly resume operations after large-scale emergencies—such as hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, or infectious disease outbreaks.
