Global Health Security Risks for 2015
When: Thursday, February 19, 2015
Time: 1 - 2 p.m. EST
Which health risks should we expect to affect travelers, expatriates and others this year? What can be done to reduce these risks so companies, NGO's, and universities can achieve their goals and flourish globally?
In 2014, global health threats impacted organizations around the world. It brought the worst Ebola outbreak the world has ever seen with ripple effects around the world. Also, we saw certain diseases pop up where they've never been seen before, like Chikungunya, which is transmitted through mosquitos and surfaced in the Caribbean as well as the East Coast of the United States.
During this webinar our medical experts will discuss what can be expected for 2015, but most importantly, what organizations can do to minimize their risks and successfully continue their projects, meetings, operations, etc. Specifically, our experts will address:
- Highlights from our 2015 Health Risk Map
- The value of assistance to an organization's ROI
- How the Ebola outbreak has caused organizations to take another look at their plans for other risks and integrating global health security as a key component
