EDEN and FEMA Introduce America's PrepareAthon!

3:00 pm EDT

America's PrepareAthon!  was launched in 2013 as a national, grassroots campaign for action to increase community preparedness and resilience through hazard-specific drills, group discussions, and exercises. The goals of the campaign are to increase the number of individuals who:

  • Understand which disasters could happen in the community;
  • Know what to do to be safe and mitigate damage;
  • Take action to increase their preparedness; and
  • Participate in community resilience planning.

Join EDEN Communications Specialist Abby Hostetler and FEMA Program Specialist Kirsten Roth to learn more about America's PrepareAthon!, how you can participate in the April 30 National PrepareAthon! Day, and how these materials can complement EDEN disaster preparedness courses.

Please register for the webinar at  https://icpd.adobeconnect.com/eden1/event/registration.html. (Note the seminar room will open 30 minutes prior to start of the webinar.)

About the Presenter

Dr. Johnie Jenkins, Research Geneticist with the USDA-ARS in Starkville, MS, was honored with the 2013 NAPB Lifetime Achievement Award. Johnie joined ARS in 1961 and has made and continues to make significant contributions to the science of plant breeding. Dr. Jenkins has been recognized in many other venues during his career, including induction into the USDA Hall of Fame in 2007. Johnie has been a leader in developing interdisciplinary teams to research host plant resistance in cotton, an effort that has brought about reduction of damage by several insect pests and nematodes. He pioneered the understanding of the effects of chemical differences among cotton strains on the variability of damage done by pests and performed seminal work on cotton fruiting, retention, and yield, developing the technique of "plant mapping" that is used throughout the industry today. Dr. Jenkins’ research has benefited the global cotton community through his mentoring of 71 graduate students from 12 countries.
