The Hub Speaks: Puerto Rico Makes Strides to Improve the
Accuracy of Death Reporting
We are excited to share a special edition of The Hub Speaks, which has been combined with Elevate, a periodic publication of the Public Health Learning Network that discusses issues of concern throughout the national network, and shares information about training, approaches, and resources. Our quarterly publication is part of a partnership with the National Coordinating Center for Public Health Training (NCCPHT) at NNPHI and several other Hurricane Response Hub partners across the country.
In this issue of our newsletter, the Puerto Rico Hurricane Response Hub discusses its recent death certificate and disaster-related mortality surveillance training, Isabella Kaser, program associate at NNPHI shares her reflections from her experience at the training in Puerto Rico, and we share interviews with Cristi Cain, a participant in NNPHI’s Strategic Scholars Program, and Dr. Joseph Barbera, who helped lead the Hurricane Response Hub Project ECHO series on Individual and Workforce Resilience: Before, During, and After a Prolonged Hurricane Emergency.
