Media coverage may have slowed down, but the lack of preparedness the Ebola crisis exposed isn’t going away.

Prepare your organization for health care communication crises at one conference: “Beyond Ebola: Health Care Crisis Communications Preparedness in the New Era of Epidemics.”

The conference takes place Jan. 29- 30, 2015, at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago.

Learn more about the conference.

You’ll hear from the communicators who were in the trenches during the recent Ebola outbreak-representatives from Emory University, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, The Nebraska Medical Center and more.

These communicators will discuss how to:

  • Develop a bulletproof crisis communications plan.
  • Avoid the 10 most common mistakes PR pros make in crises.
  • Use social media and mobile tools to manage crisis logistics.
  • Pinpoint and prepare for future crises before they happen.
  • Defuse social media extremists, naysayers and misinformation.

See the full agenda.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to hear from veteran communicators and discover strategies you can immediately use in your organization.

Crises don’t allow on-the-job training. Register for this important training session now.
