Health and Human Services employees certainly have a seat at the table when confronting catastrophe. However, there's a natural tendency to turn to first responders to plan and respond. Should the role of HHS professionals be elevated? Simple answer: Yes.

Health risks identified after natural disasters and health epidemics demonstrate a need for Health and Human Service involvement, and geographic information systems can help HHS professionals do their jobs better.

Join us online on Thursday, December 14 at 2pm ET/11am PT to learn how GIS can support HHS efforts behind planning, response and recovery of major crises like natural disasters and health epidemics like Zika and Ebola.

Specifically, you’ll learn:

  • Best practices of how GIS is being applied in crisis response.
  • How to use effective storytelling to educate the public and policy makers.
  • How local governments leading the charge are benefiting from a location based approach.
