HOUSTON, TX -- As residents near the Gulf Coast prepare for the upcoming hurricane season, Lone Star College-University Park (LSC-University Park) is hosting an important session in its ReadUP! series on hurricane preparedness. The March 5, 2024, event features Halley Goldstein from the Harris County Public Health Department. The session will take place in the Student Learning Resource Center (SLRC) Teaching Gallery, building 12, 8th floor, from 2-3 p.m.

Goldstein, who holds a Master's in Social Work from Monmouth University and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Rider University, will discuss community resilience and preparedness, sharing strategies to effectively deal with the spectrum of conditions from tropical storms to hurricanes. Her presentation comes at a critical time, as hurricane season approaches, spanning from June 1 through Nov. 30, approaches.

The event includes a lecture followed by a question-and-answer session, welcoming students, faculty, staff, and the surrounding community, to engage directly with Goldstein on these vital topics.

“The ReadUP! program encourages thought-provoking discussions and civic engagement beyond the classroom," said LSC-University Park ReadUP! committee co-chair Priscilla Arteaga.

“This session on hurricane and tropical storm preparedness directly addresses issues that our community faces annually, embodying our dedication to tackling relevant issues head-on,” added ReadUP! co-chair and history professor Jamie Stoops, Ph.D.
