From lessons learned in a simulated NICU disaster event focusing on evacuation and surge, to the challenges pediatricians faced in Texas and Puerto Rico during the 2017 hurricanes with reunifying affected families, these experiences and stories will allow others to gain a crucial insight into how they should react, respond, and recover when the next disaster should strike.
