Faith Community Summit on Pandemic Preparedness and Response: June 20/21, 2007
What will happen when a pandemic hits? Summit participants received a glimpse of what it might look like from Lt. Colonel Irene Stickland, Vice President and Deputy CEO of Scarborough Grace Hospital in 2003—ground zero in Ontario during that year’s SARS outbreak. In particular, she suggested that faith groups need to develop communication plans to get information down to the congregational levels, and that congregations need to “plan ways they will help the sick in their congregations, and the elderly, people living alone.”
This audio recording includes the plenary sessions, presentations, panel discussions during this Summit. The stated goals of the Summit were to present the basic biology of pandemics and how they develop; to unpackage the particularities of pandemic planning; and to highlight the thorny ethical issues that congregations would face during a disease outbreak.
