Wayne State University's Center for Emerging and Infectious Diseases and the University of Michigan's 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.
This four-part quarterly series will focus on a range of issues concerning the role of public health in responding to infectious disease outbreaks and disasters. Topics such as disasters, climate change, public health disparities, and emerging and seasonal disease threats will be covered. This recorded webinar will focus on the current Monkeypox, or MPOX, outbreak throughout the United States, the response to the outbreak, and the stigmatization of gender and sexual minorities.
This training was originally presented on December 8, 2022.
