Disasters and your health

The best disaster responders are ready at a moment’s notice. They must therefore be well-trained before the disaster strikes

Until now, few responders have limited learning opportunities available in the cities where they live.

In this seminar, Dr. Keim teaches you everything you need to know from the comfort and safety of your home or office. He then personally evaluates and documents your achievement.

In both of these engaging multi-day seminars, Dr. Mark Keim personally walks you through the health consequences of all major disasters.

He’ll coach you and your group through simple, time-saving steps on how to better understand disasters caused by natural and/or man-made hazards. He then provides you with a signed certificate of completion.
