Enjoy lunch wherever you are while you join us online to hear today’s speaker.

The needs of children are often not part of routine disaster planning and preparedness although it is well understood that infants and young children are especially vulnerable. Patricia Frost, Vice Chair of the National Pediatric Disaster Coalition, will highlight what has been learned during 9-11, H1N1, Katrina, Sandy Hook, wildfires, and earthquake events and how efforts to create emergency medical systems of care for children may be able to make the critical difference.
 
In addition to serving as Vice Chair of the National Pediatric Disaster Coalition, Patricia Frost RN, PHN, MS, PNP recently retired as the EMS Agency Director for Contra Costa County. As EMS Director, she was responsible for regulatory oversight and medical health disaster coordination of the County’s EMS System serving 1.1 million residents and over 250,000 children. Pat has over 40 years of pediatric and neonatal experience in a variety of roles, including clinical faculty and medical relief work in Ecuador and Vietnam. As a policy and a regulatory leader, she has served in a variety of capacities advocating for emergency preparedness for infants, children, and pregnant women on the local, state, and national levels.
