Dear Managers:

Please encourage members to participate in a webinar that the AAP is coordinating with the CDC. The purpose of this event is to share information on the 2010 report of the National Commission on Children and Disasters and to discuss how the report recommendations can be supported in states. David Schonfeld, MD; Joseph Wright, MD; and Karen Remley, MD (Health Commissioner in Virginia) are scheduled to present.

The National Commission is completing its term, so this is likely the only opportunity for members to learn about the 2010 report to the President and Congress.

Because this is a webinar, registration is suggested. CEU credits are available!

AAP/CDC Webinar: State Level Pediatric Emergency Preparedness

Time: 4:00 - 5:15 p.m. (Eastern Time)
Call Number: 888-673-9802

Children are extremely vulnerable during disaster situations. States play a critical role in the recovery of pediatric health following a disaster, and should have appropriate "All-Hazards" emergency preparedness plans that address the unique needs of pediatrics. During this COCA conference call subject matter experts will discuss gaps in pediatric preparedness and national recommendations aimed to improve pediatric emergency preparedness at the state level.
