Emergent Network Leadership:
How Community and Public Health Partnerships
Contribute to Disaster Recovery And Resilience
February 21, 12:00-1:00pm (EST)
The increasing frequency and intensity of weather-related and other disaster events have led to an increasing interest in advancing partnerships between government and community-based organizations
(CBOs) to improve a community’s resilience in the aftermath of a disaster. Joie Acosta, Senior Behavioral Scientist at RAND, will share findings from a network study using the PARTNER tool that was conducted in New York City on the response and recovery efforts
after Hurricane Sandy among local public health departments and health, medical, and social services CBOSs. In particular, how a partnership’s structure, strength, and coordinated services contributed to community response and recovery impacts up to two years
after the storm.
Through this example of Hurricane Sandy’s cross-sector disaster response and recovery network, attendees will better understand how the following can be applied to their own partnership efforts:
