"Pandemics, Public Health, and Political Change: The Critical Importance of Communication" - Dr. Richard Besser
Dr. Besser, currently ABC News' chief health and medical editor, was the acting director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and led the agency's response to the 2009 H1N1 flu pandemic. He learned the critical importance of communication to shape perceptions of health crises and health behaviors. His talk will discuss public health and political change and he’ll explain why in health the biggest impacts can be made by talking rather than by testing.
