The SHOREline Project
SHOREline is a youth empowerment program that seeks to provide an opportunity to make fundamental changes in the lives of youth, their families, their communities, and beyond.
NCDP created SHOREline with the support of the Baton Rouge Area Foundation to give youth a voice—and a platform—for encouraging their own recovery and the recovery of those around them.
Do you have the knowledge and skills to survive a natural or man-made disaster or emergency? In 2012, 106 million people worldwide were affected by disasters. In the United States, we saw wildfires in Colorado, hurricanes in New York and heat waves in Ohio—among many other extreme-weather events. Disasters such as these show us the importance of planning and preparing.
Learn how to prepare yourself using Columbia Regional Learning Center’s (CRLC) online courses, webinars and videos. We offer more than 40 competency-based public health classes. All of our trainings are free and you’ll receive a certificate of completion when you finish the course. Visit our Training Center to explore more.
Gulf Coast Population Impact Project
More than two years after the Deepwater Horizon platform exploded and the Macondo well spewed an estimated 4.9 million barrels of crude oil, the Gulf Coast communities continue to struggle with the impact of the oil leak.
Since then, there has been considerable interest on the part of policy‐makers, providers, communities, and the research community in understanding the impact of the largest offshore oil spill on human health, particularly that of children.
Post-Katrina Disaster Recovery in the Gulf Coast
The Gulf Coast Child and Family Health Study (G-CAFH) is a longitudinal study of post-disaster recovery measures in the Mississippi and Louisiana Gulf Coast. Established in 2006, the cohort is comprised of 1,079 randomly selected households sampled from FEMA trailer parks, commercial trailer parks, and community venues. Respondents have been surveyed annually regarding their physical and mental health as well as social and economic indicators of recovery.
Visit the G-CAFH site to learning more about the study and its findings.
