Greater Houston-area community members can learn health-related topics to know before, during and after a natural disaster through workshops from TOMAGWA HealthCare Ministries, according to an Aug. 27 press release.
TOMAGWA partnered with Americares—a nonprofit disaster relief and global health organization—to create free, one-hour “Staying Healthy After a Disaster” workshops to discuss topics including drinking water safety, wastewater and septic tank safety, health effects of mold, recognizing post-traumatic stress disorder and other health care topics, according to the release.
All attendees will receive a free planning and resource guide, the release said. Additional sessions may be offered in northwest Harris, Montgomery and Waller counties upon request.
Workshops take place Sept. 10, Oct. 8 and Nov. 12 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Tomball Community Center, 221 Market St., Tomball. For those interested in scheduling an additional session, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 281-357-0474.
