Dr. Fox provides disaster relief

On April 28, 2011 a tornado ripped through northern Alabama and devastated parts of Huntsville. A few days later, Dr. Laura Fox, PCSP Assistant Dean for Professional and Student Affairs, arrived as part of a disaster relief group from the Southern Baptist Convention to help. Dr. Fox worked as part of the Crisis Intervention team, assisting people affected to stabilize and regain control of their lives, defuse the emotional overload caused by the disaster, and to restore equilibrium in individuals by helping them cope with crisis reactions in order to minimize their long-term stress. The team’s goal was to help Huntsville residents make their first step toward rebuilding a sense of safety and hope.
