15. Engaging with Disaster Citizen Science

This afternoon I participated in a Center for Disease Control Emergency Partners Information Connection (EPIC) webinar entitled Engaging with Disaster Citizen Science. This webinar is intended to encourage health departments to work with community groups to increase their participation in local disaster preparedness.

An Ohio District 3 county Amateur Radio Emergency Service is an example of a community group the presenters are attempting to encourage through this webinar, its PowerPoint slides and its associated workbooks, which will be made available at a later date.

To view this recorded webinar, the PowerPoints and to explore the topic further, go to: https://emergency.cdc.gov/epic/learn/2021/webinar_20210901.asp
