Keynote Speaker: Dr Karen Hammad, Consultant, World Health Organisation, Geneva


In 2001 while watching scenes from the World Trade Center attack unfold on television Karen was prompted to reflect on the readiness of the emergency department she was working in at the time as well as her own personal preparedness for something similar occurring in her own city. Karen recognised gaps in her own disaster preparedness and through discussions with colleagues became aware that others felt as unprepared as she did. This stirred a passion in Karen which determined the rest of her career focussing on building resilience and preparedness in front line health professionals. Full profile
