ASPR TRACIE continues to monitor the Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Together with the National Ebola Training and Education Center (NETEC), we are hosting the Healthcare System Readiness for Highly Pathogenic Infectious Diseases webinar on Tuesday, June 12, from 1-2:15 p.m. EDT. Register now: space is limited. We invite you to visit our Select Infectious Disease Resources page, which includes a link to our comprehensive VHF/Ebola Topic Collection.
Summertime is synonymous with sunshine, relaxation, and vacations, but not for our stakeholders! We know that many of you are finalizing preparations for (and some have already responded to) the hazards that accompany warmer weather. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration states, Each year, the United States averages some 10,000 thunderstorms, 5,000 floods, 1,300 tornadoes and 2 Atlantic hurricanes, as well as widespread droughts and wildfires. We encourage you to check out our Natural Disasters Topic Collection and Select Hurricane-Related Resources page.
Be on the lookout for Issue 7 of The Exchange later this month, featuring your colleagues sharing their experiences providing healthcare in the minutes and hours after no-notice incidents, such as mass shootings. You can always visit the ASPR TRACIE-Developed Resources page to review past issues.
This issue of The Express includes information on an upcoming webinar, new and updated ASPR TRACIE resources, forthcoming events, and domain contents.
