Disaster Interest Group

Welcome to the Disaster Interest Group!

We are a group of professionals at the University of Miami and Jackson Health System whose common interest is in disaster-related research, education, clinical care, community service, and policy-locally, nationally and globally.

We are looking for others like us.

With dispersed campuses, hospitals and clinics and centers--and with diverse interests and areas of focus--we are trying to discover our counterparts.  We are attempting to identify our collegues who engage in education, service, research, clinical practice, humanitarian relief and policy analysis related to mitigation; preparedeness; and short-, medium- or long-term response to disasters and traumatic events.  We hope that you will identify yourself or your group and consider participating with us and join the effort.

We hope to gain an understanding of the landscape of disaster work and service in our midst and to create a Disaster Interest Group for those who want to learn from each other. 

If this describes you please respond to us via email deepcenter@med.miami.edu and fill out our online survey http://dig.med.miami.edu/survey/ as a starting point for ongoing communication.

Please search our site for more information, updates and resources. 

Thank you for your interest in the University of Miami/Jackson Health System Disaster Interest Group!


DIG Secured Log-in


Already a member?  Use your UM or JMH ID to log-in to our newly launched secured site to connect with one another, post and access shared resources, post and view training opportunities and much more. 

Please remember you must be a registered member of the Disaster Interest Group to have access to the secured portion of the website.  At this time, DIG is only open to University of Miami and Jackson Health System employees with a valid UM or JMH email account.  We are currently working to add those individuals who have shown interest in being a DIG member, but whom are unaffliated with UM/JMH.  Thank you for your patience while we attempt to resolve this matter.
