The impact of pandemic influenza will be felt in every community by every citizen. Hospitals will be overwhelmed and pharmaceutical interventions will be in short supply. Critical infrastructure such as transportation, commerce, utilities, and public safety will be disrupted. With simultaneous outbreaks occurring over large geographic regions, communities will have to rely on local resources and coordinate their preparedness activities across all sectors. Networks and relationships have to be established to communicate and manage the risks, now and during the pandemic.This program will examine the case of California’s Santa Clara County, where the community is preparing for a pandemic that will challenge their public health system and affect every aspect of their daily life. This program will seek to increase awareness of the local, state, and federal response to pandemic influenza and steps communities should take to prepare. Seating is limited and advanced registration is required.
