2015 Hurricane Sandy Grantee Meeting Overview

Shortly after Hurricane Sandy, ASPR, CDC, and NIEHS funded a series of two-year research grants that examine long-term recovery of health systems and communities in areas of the country hard hit by the storm. As the projects near completion, we invite you to participate in a two-day conference to share the research outcomes and products, and to discuss next steps for translating the research findings into public health policy and practice.

The meeting is open to the public and will bring together the ASPR, CDC, and NIEHS awardees, other disaster and public health researchers, public health policy and disaster preparedness thought leaders, policy makers and practitioners, representative from community groups, and member of the impacted communities. The conference will feature the following activities:

  • Keynote addresses from public health policy and disaster preparedness thought leaders
  • Poster sessions with displays from all 31 ASPR, CDC, and NIEHS projects
  •  A series of interactive research outcomes panel discussions, each featuring 3-4 awardees with thematically linked projects who will discuss their findings and the implications for Sandy recovery and public health preparedness
  • A series of special sessions designed to promote dialogue with members of impacted communities, and to discuss the communication and translation of research results
