  • Overview

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) plays a significant role in preparing for and responding to public health emergencies. How has the CDC's emergency response process changed for the better in recent years, particularly as we apply lessons from our response to Hurricane Katrina, and what improvements can still be made? How can we maintain continuity of care among multiple providers during these discombobulating times? Dr. Richard Besser, pediatrician and director of the CDC's Coordinating Office for Terrorism Preparedness and Emergency Response, explores the critical role of doctors on the local level to prepare for emergencies and take action once they occur. Dr. Besser also encourages us to think about personal response and communication plans, as well as stockpiling supply strategies. Dr. Jennifer Shu hosts.
