The course includes engaging lectures in the morning and hands-on skill stations and an expert panel in the afternoon.

“This first-of-its-kind training in Southeast Texas not only helps to equip healthcare workers and first responders with education, but it provides a way for these professionals to network, plan and prepare together before disaster strikes,” a statement from CHRISTUS reads.
