Dr. Lori Peek, in the presentation, "Children and Disasters - Reducing Vulnerability and Building Capacity," brings to life the progress, ongoing challenges, and possibilities in reducing the vulnerability of children to disasters. Through her experience working directly with children, including a young survivor of Hurricane Katrina, Peek gives emergency managers five specific ideas to reduce the vulnerability of children to disasters right now.
Peek is director of the Natural Hazards Center and a professor in the Department of Sociology at the University of Colorado Boulder. She studies vulnerable populations in disasters and is author of “Displaced: Life in the Katrina Diaspora,” and co-author of “Children of Katrina.”
