A Public Health and Emergency Communication Planning Session
As a leader in your community, you are invited to participate in a session on May 28, 2013 to help develop a working and meaningful communication plan for public health and emergency information. This event is hosted by the County of San Diego, Health and Human Services Agency and Office of Emergency Services, and San Diego State University. Eight language communities have been invited to the session. Translation and interpretation will be available in Spanish, Arabic, Tagalog, Korean, Chinese, Vietnamese, Karen, and Somali.
