This Working Group aims to convene calls of state, county and local leaders, experts, and providers from public health, government, health care, community civic groups, and others to identify knowledge gaps, needs and concerns related to the upcoming 2020 hurricane season under the current public health crisis. Through these calls, the group will facilitate relationship-building, information and resource sharing, and co-learning to fill knowledge gaps (data, theoretical frameworks) to inform policies, procedures, and planning. Group members will participate in calls, share documents and resources to be compiled in a repository, and provide input and recommendations.

Help inspire coalition leaders by sharing your success in the following tracks. Read More
