About the Summit
May 9, 2019
New York, NY
The 2019 Health at the Center Americares Partner Summit explores resilience—how resilient communities recover from disasters, how resilience is key to mental health and how public health depends on resilient environments.
Building Resilient Communities
Extreme weather is the new normal. Learn how coordination before disasters can build community resilience from our expert panel of business executives, public officials and non-profit leaders. Panelists will bring insights from the health, energy, consumer goods and disaster management sectors to answer some of the most pressing questions in emergency preparedness.
Creating Pathways to Better Mental Health
One in four people across the world experiences mental health issues. While global support for mental health is building, the need for broader awareness and acceptance remains. Learn how mental health conditions affect all ages, races and income levels and listen to featured speakers’ innovative approaches to reducing stigma and promoting positive cultural shifts.
Connecting Health and the Environment
Health and the environment are fundamentally connected. Join a dynamic conversation around the intersection of health and climate change. Then, gain expert insight into how wildlife conservation impacts community health in Africa.
