How did you first learn about EPIC-N?

Attended first “SCYP Replication Workshop” (precursor to the annual EPIC-Network Conference conference) in Eugene in 2012

What are some of the top priorities you are working on this year?

Finding external funding to reduce the cost to cities/counties to participate in our program, recruiting projects/partners

What led you to participate within the EPIC-Network in your current capacity?

I was asked to participate in a webinar about our Resilient Communities Project program at the University of Minnesota and our work developing resilience across the region.

What are you hoping attendees will take with them after attending your upcoming presentation?

That university-sponsored community-engaged projects, done well and collaboratively, can benefit all participants–communities, faculty, and students.
