Putting the “Where” in Prepare: A Modern Approach to Public Health Preparedness

Preparation and response to evolving public health threats is a complex challenge. While the threats vary across departments and geographies, similar workflows and capabilities are needed by public health organizations regardless of their size or budgets.

Everyone needs situational awareness and tools that make the delivery of public information and resources easier.

Join us on Thursday, May 2 from 2-3 p.m. ET/11 a.m.-noon PT to learn how to take a modern approach to this work using geographic information systems (GIS) tools from Esri that address the Center of Disease Control's six key preparedness domains.

Specifically, you’ll learn how to:

  • Use GIS tools to rapidly assess health needs.
  • Integrate multiple data sources “on-the-fly” using Web GIS.
  • Increase situational awareness with easily configured apps.
  • Efficiently site point of dispensing (POD) locations for your strategic national stockpile (SNS).
