IAVM members should plan to join us this Friday, February 7, at 4 PM EST, for a very important webinar with major stakeholders concerning the Coronavirus outbreak.
Among those participating in the approximate 45-minute webinar include the Center For Disease Control, American Red Cross, US Travel, and Department of Homeland Security.
Joe Bresee, Associate Deputy Incident Manager with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), will speak on Friday’s panel, as will Brad Keiserman representing the American Red Cross, and Tori Barnes, Executive Vice President, Public Affairs & Policy with the U.S. Travel Association.
“This webinar will also be inclusive of other associations involving meeting planners, organizers, and service contractors,” said Mark Herrera, IAVM Director of Education/Life Safety. “All those working within environments involving mass crowds from small to large where all types of events are held will benefit greatly from the webinar.”
The webinar will provide participants an update on the current emerging Coronavirus threat, which has sickened more than 20,000 people and killed almost 500 people in China. Plan to learn about the current travel restriction and precautionary measures to take when traveling. The webinar will also provide insight on how the government, health officials, and American Red Cross are working to prepare for and halt the spread of the Coronavirus.
IAVM looks forward to providing information and resources that can assist members and those from other associations to better prepare for this emerging threat.
