The NPLI welcomed Cohort X to Harvard in early December. The 50 participants came from Federal agencies such as CDC, DHS, FDA, and FEMA. State and local participants came from California, Illinois, Massachusetts, Nevada, Ohio, and others. There were also participants from the private and non-profit sectors.
Guest speakers fro the program included USCG ADM (ret) Thad Allen, USCG VADM Peter Neffenger, and FEMA Deputy Administrator Rich Serino.
Participants are now home working on group projects that range from gleaning actionable information from Twitter feeds to the international response framework, to an app to connect NPLI participants across cohorts.
A warm welcome to the NPLI family!
