Jamie Davis, the Podmedic and Rick Russotti from the Mitigation Journal kick off the first full day at the Public Health Preparedness Summit with a look at the varied attendees at this conference. An international group of public health officials are in attendance from countries like China and South Korea, as well as others.
Preparedness is Universal
Rick points out that preparedness issues for public health professionals are somewhat universal. No matter what disaster you are preparing for, the challenges of providing for the population in its aftermath are the same. Whether it’s a tsunami, earthquake, hurricane or tornado the victims and survivors have the same daily needs for their continued health as the recovery proceeds.
