The topic selected by students must be submitted for approval by February 20th. This should consist of a maximum of one page:
- Full Title ( Disaster Kits for Flood Victims in the Mississippi Delta)
- Specific Learning Objectives
- Specify project preference
The one-page paper should be specified using these directions:
Imagine that you are an emergency manager for your local community. Identify the vulnerable socioeconomic populations in your community. Assemble (on paper) a disaster supply kit to distribute to this population. What are the essential supplies? What is the estimate of the cost for the kit? What plan would you develop for distributing the kits to the population? Would you charge for the kit? Prepare a community bulletin advertising the kit, including a letter of proposal for kit distribution to a vulnerable population representative. How did this process illustrate how a person’s social class makes preparing for a disaster a challenge? Address how interprofessional groups could assist those at the lower end of the class hierarchy.
