Crisis Leadership in Disasters Symposium


The National Center for Disaster Medicine and Public Health (NCDMPH) is pleased to announce that registration is now open for the Center’s Crisis Leadership in Disasters Symposium to be held September 6, 2017 in Bethesda, MD. 


The Symposium will provide an opportunity to explore crisis leadership training needs in the health professions, particularly health emergency and disaster response. During the half-day event, leading experts in crisis leadership will provide examples of how crisis leadership manifests in other professions. We will hear from Lieutenant General Ken Keen, who oversaw disaster response operations following the 2010 Haiti earthquake, and Dr. Leonard Marcus, founding Director of the Program for Health Care Negotiation and Conflict Resolution at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Through these presentations and dialogue during a panel discussion with Q&A, attendees will explore how those lessons may be translated to the health professions.
