At the conclusion of the session, the participant will be able to:
- Describe how existing health disparities and social and economic conditions may put populations at increased vulnerability during a public health emergency.
- Describe at least two barriers to addressing disparities and vulnerabilities in public health emergencies.
- Describe at least two ways in which at-risk/vulnerable populations have successfully addressed previous public health emergencies.
- Discuss two ways communities are reducing social, economic, and health disparities to address the needs of at-risk/vulnerable populations in public health emergencies.
- Identify two approaches by interdisciplinary teams that may be effective in advancing equity in community resilience for public health emergencies.
