Disaster Preparedness Conference Sponsored By CDPHE’s Office of Emergency Preparedness and Response

CDPHE's Office of Emergency Preparedness and Response, in coordination with local and state partners, is hosting a Long Term Care Disaster Preparedness Conference in order to enhance the ability of health care organizations throughout Colorado to respond to emergencies. 

The conference will be held June 2-3, 2014, with a Welcome Reception on Sunday, June 1, from 4:00pm-6:30pm. The conference will be held at the Colorado Springs Marriott, located at 5580 Tech Center Drive, Colorado Springs, CO 80919.

Due to limited space, priority registration will be given to long term care facilities, assisted living residences, home health providers, and other health organizations serving vulnerable community members. We are requesting local public health agencies, emergency managers, and first responders register after May 1, 2014.
