Details

TRB will conduct a webinar on Tuesday, December 11, 2018, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that features a research from the Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Insight Event: Airport Roles in Reducing Transmission of Communicable Diseases and Legal Research Digest 34: Airport Public Health Preparedness and Response: Legal Rights, Powers, and Duties.

The March 2018 ACRP Insight event brought together airport and public health experts from around the U.S. and abroad to discuss their insights based on their personal experiences confronting and mitigating communicable disease at airports and beyond.  This webinar will feature a presentation from the Insight Event that guides airport emergency management teams in understanding and developing effective response plans and operations during communicable disease outbreaks. The presenters will also provide a review of existing statutes, regulations, and case law related to airport communicable disease preparedness. They will discuss a legal framework for airport lawyers and managers who are developing or updating their communicable disease preparedness plans.

This webinar is sponsored by the Airport Cooperative Research Program. There is no fee to attend this webinar; however, sign into MyTRB.org to view registration information.
