Robert Wood Johnson Foundation

A documentary film on the public health response to a catastrophe

When Hurricane Sandy made landfall in 2012, it brought with it some of the greatest public health and emergency preparedness challenges in recent history, leaving dozens dead and millions without power. It was a true test of the capabilities of the public health system. For the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, we created a video showing how public health departments worked to ensure communities were safe and healthy before, during and after the superstorm.
