Community-Based Disaster Risk Reduction
Author: Mark Keim
Content: This online program features a CDC subject matter expert will discuss the importance of disaster risk reduction for reducing adverse health effects of disasters and how application of the basic tenets of preventive medicine and public health can result in a more humane and cost-effective approach to emergency management.
Measurement, mechanistic and geospatial models of public health hazard vulnerability and jurisdictional risk.
Presenter: Marcia A. Testa, MPH, PHD
Content: This online program describes how county and state public health departments are increasingly conducting hazard vulnerability and jurisdictional risk (HVJR) assessments as part of their public health emergency planning. A subject matter expert describes who an academic-health department partnership undertook a quantitative analysis to validate measurement and mechanistic models of HVJR using geographical information system (GIS) mapping and multivariate statistical techniques.

Risk Methods and Models
Presenter: Ted Lewis
Content: This online program features a subject matter expert who has developed an online tutorial to introduce the building blocks of ‘risk informed decision–making,’ which is a practice within Homeland Security. The tutorial will trace the origins of Probabilistic Risk Analysis during the 1970s, then Stackelberg Competition from the 1980s, Bayesian Beliefs from the 1990s and Self-Organized Criticality of Complex Network Systems from the 2000s.
