This year, the U.S. is facing the most extensive drought in more than 50 years, which is challenging many jurisdictions with drought-related health impacts for the first time. This webinar will showcase state and local government responses to previous droughts, including lessons learned in public health response, emergency management coordination and environmental health impacts.
This is the second in a four-part series “Drought: When Every Drop Counts,” co-sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Center for Environmental Health/Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry and the American Public Health Association. Register today.
