This webinar will provide a demonstration of the recently released CONVERGE Public Health Implications of Hazards and Disaster Research Training Module. This free online resource offers original content and a number of case studies to illustrate the relationship between public health and hazards and disaster research. It also emphasizes how this research can help improve the health of disaster-affected people and communities.
Whether your background is in the social sciences, engineering, natural sciences, or another discipline that focuses on hazards and disasters, your research may have important implications for public health. The webinar will feature tips for how you can integrate the Public Health Implications of Hazards and Disaster Research Training Module into your classroom or use it to advance your research. In addition, you will see how the module functions and be able to view the resources associated with it.
The new module, like the others in the series, concludes with a 10-question quiz. Upon successful completion of the quiz, users receive a certificate, which is worth one contact hour of general management training through the International Association of Emergency Managers (IAEM) certification program.
The CONVERGE Public Health Implications of Hazards and Disaster Research Training Module—developed with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Science Foundation—is now available via the CONVERGE website. We encourage you to access it as well as the CONVERGE Assignment Bank and Annotated Bibliographies in advance of the webinar.
Please note that this webinar will be recorded and posted on this page after the event. Finally, we ask that you sign up for future events and free resources at the CONVERGE website.
