The FEMA Think Tank is a forum to engage the whole community, connect resources and share best practices, and develop solutions to the challenges we face in emergency management.  Featured topics have included incorporating preparedness into school curriculums, new technologies in emergency management and disability integration.  This conference call is a unique opportunity for the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response and the FEMA Deputy Administrator to highlight the importance of integrating healthcare, public health and emergency management. 

The focus of this month's call is Emergency Management, Healthcare, and Public Health: Increasing Coordination and Collaboration. Topics that will be discussed include:
·         Emergency Management Coordination, improving communication with the Healthcare and Public Health sectors;
·         Medical Incident Support Teams (M-IST), a cutting edge best practice supporting State Emergency Management; and
·         Tennessee Mental Health Response Plan- coordinated state, regional, and local mental health planning and response efforts for disasters of any type; and Tennessee Recovery Project- creative approaches to providing services to reduce stress and the impact of disasters on survivors.

Please visit the Think Tank Online Forum and share your ideas on how to improve coordination and collaboration between emergency management, healthcare, and public health.
