Consistent with the President’s prevention and wellness initiatives, we feel this multi-layered response not only meets the emerging needs of States, communities, and individuals; but also prepares HHS in moving toward a National response and recovery system that truly mitigates the prolonged effects of disasters. In closing, we would like to thank you for your time and attention. We look forward to a discussion about what was presented here today and we are particularly interested in your ideas and feedback. Thank you.
