Report on “Growing Old in a Changing Climate

The session was mildly interesting but not particularly enlightening. Lisa Brown had a few good comments about the challenges encountered by older adults when seeking safe shelter and receiving intervention post disaster: – Disaster literacy is often very low. – Disaster literature is often written at university comprehension level. – People often need post disaster psychological first aid.

I did not glean any particular insight from the remaining program and overall found it more academic than useful.
