About Us

The EpiCenter LA

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide practical information in new and innovative ways for those interested in disaster preparedness, response and recovery. Covered topics include cyberthreats, epidemics, terrorism, hospital-acquired infections such as C.difficile, disaster communication, sister cities working together with Los Angeles, urban planning for disasters, and a calendar of related events. We host a website, EpiCenterLA.org, that is continually updated and contains background as well as new information on disasters and related topics.  It includes text, video and infographics.  We provide original content essays on the website as issues come up. Our target audience goes from trained first responders to the general population.
