Community Resilience and COVID-19

banner-covid-community-resilience

How are resource-poor communities in three distinctly different regions of the United States responding to the COVID-19 pandemic? What can be done to address root causes and prepare for future global change? This Working Group will pull together researchers in Puerto Rico, Juneau, Alaska and Wards 7 and 8 in Washington, D.C. in order to better comprehend the social, policy, information, and community competence factors that impact resilience.
