This week on Episode 9 of Hotwash, Trudy and Christine talk vulnerable population planning, discuss why it’s important, and provide some best practices for our listeners.
We’ve discussed the COVID-19 pandemic from the perspective of public health, behavioral health, and recovery, but we thought it would be interesting to look at it specifically through the lens of emergency management. We’re joined by Preeti Emrick, a former CHHS staffer, who is currently the Deputy Director of Anne Arundel County’s Office of Emergency Management.
Today on episode seven of Hotwash, we’re talking to Lisa Crow, CHHS’ Recovery Planning Program Director. We’re very lucky to have Lisa on, because she is a nationally renowned recovery expert. She is a “forged in the fire” recovery expert: she coordinated Howard County, Maryland’s post-disaster recovery efforts following both the 2016 and 2018 Historic Ellicott City Floods, and she’s here to talk to us today about recovery planning in the time of COVID-19.
Today on episode six of Hotwash, we’re talking to Nicole Regino, Senior Law & Policy Analyst who has worked extensively on planning for mental and behavioral health issues for disasters.
We’re joined today by Hassan Sheikh, senior pharmacy law and policy lead, who currently works at Baltimore City Health Department. We’re talking about the downstream impacts of COVID-19 on public health.
Today on episode four of Hotwash, we’re switching it up a bit for a game show edition, where Megan Timmins, CHHS’ Associate Director, helps us learn Emergency Management and Public Health Preparedness terms.
