Responses to our guidance on Haiti

Thanks to our readers for their comments on our posts on Haiti. We hope that you will continue to engage and exchange information as events there unfold. Please refer to the right-hand column on this blog, labeled “MOST RECENT” to view the latest information we have gathered on the situation over the past two weeks.

Here’s a quick round-up of articles this week that link back to our blog:

In addition to our core team of staff and students, we have created a Haitian Disaster Response Newsroom where student volunteers from Penn’s School of Social Policy & Practice, Wharton School, Nursing School,  School of Arts & Sciences, as well as  Temple University, are providing up-to-date briefs that can continue to inform our guidance. If you are a student local to the Philadelphia area and would like to become involved, please contact our Center for information on how you can help.
