2016 PHEMCE Stakeholders Workshop

In an infectious disease outbreak or after a terrorist strikes, getting the right drugs, vaccines, therapeutics and diagnostics to your patients can mean the difference between life and death. Do you know how easy the medical countermeasures you rely on during a disaster or emergency are to deploy?

The federal government supports the development of medical countermeasures for use during health emergencies, like an anthrax attack or outbreak of pandemic influenza. Professionals on the front lines of health play a vital role in getting those medical countermeasures to the people who need them.

If you are a clinician, first responder, hospital emergency planner, or member a of healthcare coalition who is interested in meeting the challenges that emerging infectious diseases and terrorist threats pose to our nation’s health, join us for the Public Health Emergency Medical Countermeasures Enterprise (PHEMCE) Stakeholders Workshop on January 6-7, 2016.

The PHEMCE Stakeholders Workshop gives you an opportunity to learn about emerging trends and network with your colleagues in the healthcare industry as well as many of the people who develop, purchase or use medical countermeasures, including members of the pharmaceutical industry as well as local, state and federal emergency planners.

During this event, you can contribute to discussions on the usability of medical countermeasures in a disaster and share your thoughts on developing drugs, vaccines, therapeutics and diagnostics that can be more effectively deployed when seconds count. We’ll talk about PHEMCE preparedness goals and operational capacity, clinical guidance on the use of medical countermeasures, and the Strategic National Stockpile.

The workshop also will include sessions about federal initiatives and progress, how to deal with emerging infectious diseases, lessons learned during the response to the Ebola outbreak, and updates about current medical countermeasures policy and planning efforts.

Join professionals from the front lines of health to the production lines of the pharmaceutical companies and medical device manufacturers who develop medical countermeasures. Register today!
