Building Local Response Capacity to Protect
Families from Emerging Health Threats

Presented on .

The April session of Grand Rounds, “Preventing Suicidal Behavior in American Indian and Alaska Native Communities: A Health Equity Issue,was viewed in 8 foreign countries, 37 states, and the District of Columbia.

From the Zika outbreak to natural disasters to the recent wildfires, the US has faced a series of complex public health emergencies. Each of these public health crises revealed a critical need for US public health and health care systems at the national, state, and more specifically the local levels to prepare for and rapidly respond to the unique needs of families.

This session of Grand Rounds will discuss different perspectives for building local response capabilities for emerging public health threats to families, including pregnant women, infants, and children

Public health emergencies, such as hurricanes, floods, wildfires, and disease outbreaks such as Zika, occur every day in the US. Find out how local health agencies prepare for these events that often happen suddenly and without warning. Dr. Oscar Alleyne explains how local health departments use real-time data to respond to, and recover from public health emergencies to Dr. Phoebe Thorpe.
