Hurricane Preparedness in the Wake of Covid-19, Virtual Town Hall is co-sponsored by EDEN and eXtension, in collaboration with Southern University Agricultural Research and Extension Center (SUAREC). 

Having a shared space to discuss ideas,  best practices, and network is invaluable. The goal of this virtual event is to highlight the work cooperative extension is doing, while also receiving valuable insight on the resources and programs available both internally and externally to CES. Several organizations and agencies have been invited to participate in the virtual town hall, including: LA Governor's Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (GOHSEP), FEMA, USDA, etc.
