Survey Opp: Emergency Preparedness and Disability

A research team at The George Washington University in Washington, DC is conducting a study on how people with physical disabilities think about and prepare for disasters. This research will help inform preparedness interventions across the United States. People are eligible to participate if they: 1) are 18 years or older, 2) currently live in the United States, and 3) self-identify as having a physical disability (limitations with physical functioning, mobility, dexterity or stamina; this includes difficulty walking, moving limbs, etc.). The survey is available online (approximately 20-30 minutes) or by telephone (approximately 40 minutes) and eligible participants will receive a $10 gift card (Amazon, Target or iTunes) for participating. Please contact for more information on the survey and to determine your eligibility.

    This is great! At the #CRPD summit in June, one of the topics discussed was emergency situations and how that can be very difficult for persons with disabilities for a number of reasons. Hope many people are able to participate.
