The Global Change Fellows of the Southeast Climate Adaptation Science Center have congregated a multidisciplinary panel to address how COVID-19 has affected disaster recovery and community resilience strategies. The seminar will be structured as a panel discussion among scientists and professionals from the Eastern and Western regions of the United States and the Caribbean. They will bring their expertise and experience as they answer questions provided by the fellows and audience members.

The panelists are:

  • Pablo Méndez Lázaro, associate professor in the Department of Environmental Health at the University of Puerto Rico and Graduate School of Public Health. He has conducted research addressing climate and weather extreme events impacts on public health and resilience.
