Community meeting to present local results of recent survey

Community meeting to present local results of recent survey

GALLIANO, La – In 2017, researchers from Tulane University, in conjunction with the Consortium for Resilient Gulf Communities, surveyed 89 lower Lafourche Parish residents.

Participants were surveyed on personal resilience, disaster experience and concerns for future disasters, disaster preparation, and support networks to help with disaster preparation or response.

Researchers have finalized their results of the survey and will present the information, with support from the Louisiana Public Health Institute, to the community. Attendees will also have an opportunity to see their results, ask questions, and learn how Lafourche Parish compares to Plaquemines Parish and South Mobile County, which were also part of the 2017 survey.

This event, which is free and open to the public, will be held on Thursday, December 19 at 5:30 p.m. at the South Lafourche Public Library, 16241 East Main St., Galliano.

This research was made possible by a grant from The Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative.

Light refreshments will be served.
