The 2019 Health at the Center Americares Partner Summit will explore resilience—how resilient communities recover from disasters, how resilience is key to mental health and how public health depends on resilient environments. Americares believes heath is fundamental to all aspects of development. With good health, people can attend school, be productive at work, care for their families and contribute to strong and resilient communities.

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.
