Food for Thought meeting TONIGHT!

Contributed by Zachary Briggs on 03/19/2014 

 For tomorrow's meeting we'll begin looking at the psychology of disaster impact. Natural disasters and humanitarian crises can affect everyone: domestically and internationally; directly, and indirectly. We'll look at some historical examples, and also open up discussion for members to share experiences they may have had as well.

This week will be a general overview of disaster impact, response at the public level and psychological phases at the individual level. 

Individuals with disabilities requiring accommodations should contact Zachary Briggs at We ask that requests for accommodations be made as soon as possible.
