Spotlight: Profile of a CDC PERLC

CDC provides funding for 14 Preparedness and Emergency Response Learning Centers (PERLC) across the US. These training centers support the preparedness and response education needs of state, local and tribal public health authorities within their region.
The Northwest Preparedness and Emergency Response Learning Center (NWPERLC), housed within the Northwest Center for Public Health Practice (NWCPHP), serves a six-state region in the Pacific Northwest. PERLCs use their unique capacity to adapt and tailor preparedness training to meet the needs of the people they serve and the NWCPHP serves as a model. Associate Director, Luann D’Ambrosio, says NWCPHP is committed to “breaking down silos” and sharing information across service areas. This culture of collaboration strengthens the program, trainings, and the preparedness capacity of the public health community that NWCPHP serves.
Visit the Learning Connection to read the story of how one person’s experience during Hurricane Irene inspired NWCPHP to create new trainings around social media use during emergency situations.
