COURSE DESCRIPTION & LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Course Description:
Public Health has a key role in recovery after disasters, including hurricanes. Often when other partners are demobilizing, public health departments and staff are still very involved with assisting with recovery for the residents of their jurisdictions. This course will discuss possible roles for public health and ways to incorporate resilience into planning.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify and monitor community recovery needs after a hurricane
  • Communicate the difference between emergency management and public health roles in hurricane recovery
  • Identify tools used in the community recovery process
  • Picture the scope of a recovery plan (in public health and emergency management)
