Optum Serve
Preparedness and Emergency Response team is hosting our Second Quarterly Healthcare Roundtable of 2023 at the NACCHO Preparedness Summit being held April 24 – 27 in Atlanta.

Join us as we delve into the question: What are the innovative strategies to empower resilience building in communities at high risk of disaster impact?

  • What are the tools or resources needed to be ready?
  • How can we prepare for frequent, progressive and often simultaneous crises?
  • How do we leverage the data to build solid solutions?
  • Looking beyond COVID, how do we structure our actions going forward
  • How do we employ public and private sectors to work together in partnerships to solidify progress and deliver innovation?

We are inviting healthcare leaders, industry experts, policy makers and those who serve our diverse populations across the globe to join our next critical discussion on how to collaboratively work toward solutions for the most pressing healthcare challenges. After three years, the healthcare system is still facing huge issues stemming from the global pandemic.

We will host a live panel discussion with invited subject matter experts, but please join us to listen in and ask questions as our panel delves deeper into this and related topics.

Please contact us if you are interested in lending your voice to this critical conversation.
