Ashida developing program to keep most vulnerable safe

CPH associate professor Sato Ashida is developing a new tool called PrepWise to keep the elderly and people with disabilities safe during a disaster or other mass emergency. "Some of those things that we find very easy might not be easy for older adults or people who experience disabilities, so we want to make sure people who may need extra help during and after disasters or natural situations like this are prepared before it actually occurs," she says.
