Hurricane Response Hub Project ECHO – Individual and Workforce Resilience: Before, During, and After a Prolonged Hurricane Emergency

Series Description

Please join us for the next Project ECHO series on Individual and Workforce Resilience: Before, During, and After a Prolonged Hurricane Emergency. Utilizing video conference technology, the Project ECHO model provides public health professionals opportunities to engage with subject matter experts and participate in a peer-to-peer learning community where problems, ideas, and solutions are explored together.

In this six-session ECHO series, participants will learn to facilitate individual and workforce strategies focused on managing stressors induced by prolonged hurricane emergencies.

Audience

Public health professionals responsible for or engaged in ground-level response to hurricanes. Our geographic priority areas include Texas, Louisiana, Georgia, Florida, and Puerto Rico. However, other jurisdictions/locations will be considered as space is available, so we encourage you to sign up.
