The mission of the HHS Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) is to save lives and protect Americans from 21st century health security threats.

ASPR collaborates with hospitals, healthcare coalitions, biotech firms, community members, state, local, tribal, and territorial governments, and other partners across the country to improve readiness and response capabilities. Through our presence and participation, we hope to develop and maintain strong public understanding and support of the ASPR mission.

ASPR and its programs participate in a variety of speaking engagements, including large conferences, listening sessions, community organization chats, and other events.
