Sobelson, R., Young, A., Marcus, L., et al. (2013). The Meta-Leadership Summit for Preparedness Initiative: An Innovative Model to Advance Public Health Preparedness and Response. Biosecurity and Bioterrorism. 11(4): 251-261.
This five-year initiative explored the premise that “national preparedness and emergency response is not solely the responsibility of government.” The vast majority of participants in these summits (n=36 summits over five years) gave the summit high marks, and nearly 80% reported using meta-leadership concepts or principles six months post-summit.
