CHA Calls for Presentations for Disaster Planning Conference
Presentation application deadline May 8

Hospital and health system representatives are invited to submit a presentation abstract for CHA’s 2015 Disaster Planning for California Hospitals conference, taking place Sept. 28-30 in Sacramento. The conference is a unique opportunity for members to share their emergency preparedness knowledge, innovative programs, tools and lessons learned with other member hospitals. Now in its 10th year, the conference is expected to bring together more than 800 hospital emergency preparedness coordinators, hospital administrators, CNOs, EMS personnel and public health officials.

“Every year, our conference presenters demonstrate that careful preparation and training does make a difference,” stated Cheri Hummel, CHA vice president of emergency management and facilities. “When we share new ideas and resources as well as experiences, we can all benefit.”

Presentation submissions will be reviewed by the conference committee and considered for a pre-conference workshop, plenary and breakout sessions. The submission deadline is May 8. For more information and to submit your application, visit
