The health, economic and societal implications of a pandemic require that the country begin to prepare now for future emergencies similar to COVID-19. In addition to better intergovernmental coordination and greater sustainable funding, a robust public health data infrastructure is critical to ensuring we know where the nation is and where it needs to be during a crisis.

Join BPC and invited public health and health care experts as we discuss these topics critical to our nation’s health and security.
