Student work published in international journal
Natalie Hanrion, a graduate of the master’s program in criminology who also earned a certificate in homeland security, recently co-authored an article published in the IAEM Bulletin, the official newsletter of the International Association of Emergency Managers titled “Opting in or Opting Out: Enhancing the Effectiveness of College Student Emergency Notification Systems.”
“The journal is read by more than 5000 emergency managers throughout the world and is designed to keep members abreast of association news, government actions affecting emergency management, and research and information sources,” said Dr. Bernard McCarthy, professor and director of the Center for Homeland Security at Missouri State University.
Hanrion is presently serving as an emergency preparedness specialist/watch officer with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, as well as the assistant secretary for preparedness and response at the secretary’s operations center (SOC) in Washington, D.C.
