Preparing for Pandemic

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The outbreak of Ebola in West Africa created new dimensions of risks for universities with interests in the region. While healthcare workers and governments appear to be making headway, non-essential travel to the region is still not recommended. Preparation is key to managing the impact on students, faculty and staff. But duty of care goes further than Ebola, which is just the latest risk management issue to affect universities when it comes to duty of care.

There’s also cross-border medical and security concerns, mental health issues, and natural and manmade disasters. Join us for a discussion about how to assess, prepare for and respond to these risks using new approaches and planning practices. A discussion on lessons being learned with Ebola and other medical and security risks will be explored by our panel.

As a result of participating in this session, attendees will learn:
 Best practices when it comes to Ebola about managing the needs of a global workforce.
 The latest trends/highlights in terms of global health security.
 Key takeaways to consider in implementing a global health security program for your organization.
