PD 175 - Disaster Preparedness Training

Disaster Preparedness in vulnerable populations is reliant on their access to information to properly establish their personal disaster preparedness plans. Humanity Road is interested in improving the use of technology for health information access, especially to underserved and underrepresented populations in the SE Atlantic area. Our goal is to reach vulnerable populations including over 55, women, and disabled to educate them on how to leverage online resources with the NLM to improve their personal preparedness plan. Local statistics indicate that access to broadband is limited in rural areas in the SE atlantic region. We are exploring ways to develop programming at the local library that improves community preparedness and resilience.
