Disaster Epidemiology Special Interest Group

The purpose of this SIG is to provide a forum for Safe States members with experience and interest in disaster epidemiology to express ideas, learn of best practices, and contribute to expert discussions with peers and colleagues.  It is also a great way to stay informed about current developments and build a network of professional contacts in this area.
