Peek Receives Additional Funding from the CDC
Lori Peek, Director of the Natural Hazards Center, received $419,940 in supplemental funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to advance the efforts of the NSF-supported CONVERGE facility headquartered at the Natural Hazards Center. This funding will allow the CONVERGE research team to develop and launch two additional online training modules – the first will be focused on Ethical Considerations for Hazards and Disaster Researchers and the second will focus on Collecting and Sharing Perishable Data. Both modules will be released in 2021. Visit the CONVERGE website for more information on the training modules.
