Crisis and Risk Communication

Barbara Reynolds, MA, Crisis Communication Specialist, CDC

Program Description:
Since September 11th, the role of the public health professional has become heightened. In a situation of high risk or uncertainty, what is the best way to communicate with the public and other officials? How can we protect people and simultaneously keep panic at a minimum? How can we clearly communicate with law enforcement officials and medical providers in an emergency? This program will provide clear guidelines for communicating in high risk situations

As a result of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Demonstrate how to protect people and simultaneously keep panic to a minimum.
  • Identify ways to best communicate with public and other officials.
  • Describe ways of communicating in high risk situations.
