Partnership and Preparedness

Establishing a nationally recognized initiative encompassing mass event and disaster management, emergency preparedness and community safety.

Our goal is to combine the vast expertise at Northwestern Medicine and Northwestern University, and build and foster strategic partnerships (public and private) with scale to address the challenging real-life incidents, disasters, and emergencies that impact our communities locally and globally. This hub of multi-disciplinary expertise will serve our communities and assure greater awareness, education and research, and management of such events."
