Public Health and Disasters is an annual, multidisciplinary national conference that brings together professionals from public health, health care, emergency management and other disciplines involved in preparing for, responding to, and recovering from public health emergencies.

The Public Health and Disasters Conference focuses specifically on disasters impacting or within the public health system – this means that rather than only focusing on public health, it includes the other key components of the system including emergency management, emergency medical services, health care, hospitals and the rest of the public health system. The conference is comprised of headliner keynote speakers along with practical learning and sharing sessions with ample time to engage, share and network with colleagues and speakers from across the country.


The Conference seeks to provide public health professionals with the opportunity to exchange ideas and concepts that will improve emergency public health preparedness in their local community and between organizations, and promote open dialogue between local health departments and agencies.


The conference includes tracks specific to PHEP Coordinators, emergency planners, epidemiologists, environmental health specialists, and healthcare emergency managers.
