2017 Red Cross Annual Meeting

2017 Red Cross Annual Meeting

Please join us as the American Red Cross celebrates a century of service in Eastern South Dakota. Enjoy lunch and recognize volunteers, partners, and community heroes who respond to the needs of our communities in extraordinary ways.

Featured speaker Dr. Gerard Jacobs is a professor at the University of South Dakota and Director of the Red Cross Disaster Mental Health Institute. He has worked with organizations nationally and internationally. His disaster responses have ranged from minor events to the massive loss of life and chaos of the September 11, 2001 attack on the World Trade Center, the 2001 Gujarat, India earthquake, and the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. He was asked to return from working on the tsunami response in Sri Lanka to set up the disaster mental health program for New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.
