New studies from UW-Oshkosh and UW-Eau Claire reveal ways that Wisconsin can better respond to emergencies including natural disasters and deadly viruses. We look at ways that the UW System as well as local municipalities can protect residents during disaster.

Protecting the vulnerable during disaster
Although natural disasters hurt socially vulnerable populations the most, emergency response plans don’t often include them. We speak with a UW-Oshkosh researcher on how local governments can proactively protect the vulnerable during disaster.
Improving UW System’s response to public health emergencies
In a new study, two UW Eau Claire researchers outline ways the UW System used partnerships to effectively respond to community needs during the pandemic. But they also found ways to improve. We speak with an author of the study on lessons learned for responding to the next public health crisis.
