Public Health Emergency - Leading a Nation Prepared
ASPR promotes the ongoing exchange of preparedness-related information and promising practices among its cooperative agreement recipients by conducting teleconferences and webinars. These events provide an opportunity for ASPR staff and outstanding expert speakers to provide insight into preparedness activities and to describe real-world examples of how preparedness is being implemented every day across the nation. This page provides event materials from Hospital Preparedness Program (HPP) Cooperative Agreement recipient webinars beginning in late September 2020.
