Texans experience hazards every year: tropical storms, wildfires, disease outbreaks, winter weather, and more.
What if we could improve resilience before these hazards strike, instead of picking up the pieces afterward?
Developed by a team from Johns Hopkins University and the University of Delaware, COPEWELL is comprised of a suite of evidence-based tools that leverage county-level data to help communities identify gaps and improve community functioning before, during, and after disasters. COPEWELL aims to bring together community, county, state, and federal level partners to improve community resilience.
CHERR is partnering with the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security to expand awareness and implementation of COPEWELL in Texas.
