U of M convenes a summit on the H1N1 influenza pandemic and critical business preparedness

MINNEAPOLIS/ST. PAUL (September 8, 2009)The Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRAP) at the University of Minnesota is convening an international summit on the H1N1 influenza pandemic and critical business preparedness. The summit will give business and health care leaders the practical tools, policies, and tactics to protect employee health, critical operations and customer relations during the rapidly approaching influenza season. It is estimated that the ongoing H1N1 pandemic could result in a large number of the workforce to be absent from the workplace. The faculty for the summit include many internationally recognized experts in public health and business continuity and preparedness planning and government leaders.
