Public Health Grand Rounds: “Building Local Response Capacity to Protect Families from Emerging Health Threats”

Join us for Public Health Grand Rounds, “Building Local Response Capacity to Protect Families from Emerging Health Threats,” on Tuesday, April 16, at 1:00 p.m. Eastern.  Attend in person or watch via live webcast from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, Open captions are provided.

From the Zika outbreak to natural disasters to the recent wildfires, the U.S. has faced a series of complex public health emergencies. Each of these public health crises revealed a critical need for U.S. public health and health care systems at the national, state, and more specifically the local levels to prepare for and rapidly respond to the unique needs of families.

This session of Grand Rounds will discuss different perspectives for building local response capabilities for emerging public health threats to families, including pregnant women, infants, and children.
