Alumni Update: Andy McElroy (IDHA 16)

Andy McElroy (IDHA 16) has recently published an article, “Early Warning Saves Lives in China Earthquake” discussing how the Chinese government’s allocation of resources for disaster relief, specifically an early alert system that warns residents about upcoming earthquakes, has helped save thousands of lives when an earthquake struck the Yunnan Province this Sunday, August 3rd. He has also recently published, “Quake tragedy drives advocate for safe schools” talking about how earthquake survivor Zara Tonoyan became an advocate for teaching school children how to survive disasters through the use of art and theater after she lost her sister to an earthquake at the age of 13 while they were both in school.
