our purpose

Both the WSU Center for Emerging and Infectious Diseases and the UM Public Health Prepared were created in the last year in response to the needs made evident by COVID-19. The Preparedness Roundtable series aims to provide a space for cross-sector education and engagement for those in public health, healthcare, and other related fields in order to build capacity and foster greater collaboration among those working in emergency preparedness.
