Richmont Graduate University’s Trauma Response Team will travel to Corpus Christi today to provide services to those impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
Hurricane Harvey made landfall on Corpus Christi on Aug. 25 as a category 4 hurricane with winds over 130 mph. Corpus Christi and the neighboring communities of Port Aransas and Rockport saw significant damage as Harvey made landfall and then continued to Houston. Richmont is partnering with The Field Innovation Team to provide support and recovery to the Corpus Christi community.
The Trauma Response Team will be doing field work in trailer parks, providing compassion fatigue support for first responders and will be connecting victims with FEMA services.
Richmont’s Trauma Response Team will include faculty members Vanessa Snyder Ph.D. (team leader), William MeGee Ed.D, and Lorrie Slater Ph.D. as well as Richmont graduate JJ Widener.
The team will be posting updates from Corpus Christi throughout the next week to richmonttrauma.com.
