What must be done across the country to best prepare for disasters?
A recent Institute of Medicine (IOM) report asserts that when U.S. communities, states, and federal agencies add a health lens to planning and recovery, communities can both mitigate the health damage caused by disasters and recover in ways that make them healthier and more resilient.
Please join us on December 4, from 12:15– 1 p.m.
, ET for a First Friday Google+ Hangout to discuss how communities can engage in cross-sector collaboration to incorporate health into disaster planning and recovery.
