About the Event

Anita Chandra, Director of RAND Justice, Infrastructure, and Environment, and Gary Cecchine, Director of the Gulf States Policy Institute, will serve as panelists for KATRINA@10, a special event examining the recovery, return, resilience, and enduring vulnerabilities in the 10 years since Hurricane Katrina.

The morning program of the conference will feature a set of studies focusing on how Hurricane Katrina impacted the health, well-being, and demographic characteristics of the affected population. The afternoon program will feature a team of researchers who are engaged in an interdisciplinary investigation of how Katrina-related flooding affected both ecological and socioeconomic diversity, and how those changes relate to rodent-borne diseases and human health.

How to Attend

KATRINA@10 is free to attend. Seating is currently reserved, but tickets will be made available to the public on August 21, 2015.
