About

On March 15, 2018, in partnership with NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), PCEPN hosted our 4th Annual Emergency Preparedness Seminar for Primary Care.

 

Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has published a summary of its activities in 2017, reflecting on a historic year, including unprecedented disasters that affected more than 25 million Americans; almost 8 percent of the US population. In 2017, FEMA supported 59 major disaster declarations, 16 emergency declarations and 62 Fire Management Assistance Grant declarations, across more than 35 states, tribes and territories. The importance of healthcare preparedness cannot be understated, especially in lieu of very active years like the one we just had.

 

The presenters for this year's Seminar discussed the role that community health centers, aka federally-qualified health centers (FQHC) and other types of primary care facilities could play in regards to response and recovery during and after emergencies and disasters. 

 

The program included the following speakers:

  • Jeff Schlegelmilch, MPH MBA - National Center for Disaster Preparedness, Columbia University

  • Katharine Logan, RN - Office of Health Emergency Preparedness, New York State Department of Health

  • Leighton Jones, MA - Emergency Preparedness Research, Evaluation & Practice (EPREP) Program - Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health

  • Dana Delgardo, NP & Juancy Rodriguez, NP - Callen-Lorde Community Health Center

  • Sarah S. Lewis, MPH - Vice President, Health System Services, Greater New York Hospital Association

  • Alexander Lipovtsev, LCSW - PCEPN
