Full Collection on Children and Disasters Now Available

This collection, made possible with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, focuses on many aspects of children and disaster. The short, easy-to-read articles condense recent research findings to help those working in the field stay current on topics related to children—how they are vulnerable, how caregivers and emergency managers can help them, and most of all, how they can play an active role in community preparedness and response to disaster.

Please visit the online collection to learn more about the series, and why this resource was created. Because the topic has resonated with so many people, they will also continue to add articles to the collection from time to time. You’ll be able to find the complete collection, including upcoming articles, on the Children and Disasters Special Collection web page.
