Reconnecting Communities after a Natural Disaster

Dr. Brett Perkison MD, MPH, University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston
n/a Uploaded by Lisa Brenskelle
Join Dr. Brett Perkison of the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston for a discussion of the effects that repeated record flooding due to climate change can have on local communities – often having more impact on lower socioeconomic communities who have less flood control measures put in place and have less resilience to recover from them due to financial constraints. Dr. Perkison will also focus on efforts of the local Houston community to improve resiliency through public advocacy – reviewing both the progress and the barriers that they have had encountered along the way.
