Event description

Description

The team funded by the Texas Medical Center Health Policy Institute conducted dozens of interviews concerning interpersonal relationships, institutional practices, and experiences of collaboration related to Hurricane Harvey. The goal has been to examine the functionality of the resource, information and planning networks between multiple levels of stakeholders involved in flood mitigation and response. Participants in this workshop will build on these results and on their experiences as stakeholders in order to develop greater sustainability and insights into our communities’ existing capacities, redundancies and gaps.

Refreshments served.
