DisasterToday is the second day of National Public Health Week (NPHW) and the theme is “Don’t Panic.”

Disaster preparedness is a crucial component of public health. And in the NPHW context, disaster doesn’t just mean earthquakes and super storms. It can mean home fires, Internet safety and pandemic flu.

Visit APHA’s Get Ready campaign to see how you and your family can be more prepared.

And visit the Johns Hopkins Center for Public Health Preparedness to see what Hopkins’ researchers are doing to “not panic.”
