Fall 2021 Emergency Preparedness Learning Collaborative (LC)

Our Emergency Preparedness Learning Collaborative (EPLC) will be exploring ways to address population specific emerging issues in regard to emergency preparedness, particularly developing strategies around vaccine confidence and delivery of COVID-19 vaccinations to MSAW populations. 

Learning sessions will focus on assisting health centers in building workforce capacity and creating the infrastructure necessary to develop policies and procedures to streamline their organizational response to emergency situations and customize their communications to the public in efforts of minimizing interruptions to service delivery.
