This three-session program, part of Indiana University Northwest’s Senior University, will explore the vulnerability of older adults to disaster and emergency events. Through the use of shared experiences, stories of survivors, and film footage this workshop will highlight the value of disaster planning, the needed steps to prepare for emergency situations, and the specific tools required for our personal emergency response. Attendees will also engage in developing their own emergency plans.
The other two sessions of this program take place on July 19 and July 26.
This program received funding from an Indiana Humanities Action Grant.
