Environmental Health and Disaster Management - An International Effort for Training and Awareness

Globally, environmental health professionals have a critical role in mitigating public health risks before and after disasters.  To build this capacity, the International Federation of Environmental Health, CDC and NEHA have collaborated to develop the course, "Environmental Health and Disaster Management," heavily guided by CDC's successful Environmental Health Training in Emergency Response course.
 
Attend this session to see how this type of course promotes the profession and ensures that professionals are adequately equipped to prepare, respond, recover and mitigate the adverse impacts of disasters internationally.
