Ep 14: Disease Outbreak and the Complexity of Rapid Mass Notification

Listen to audio:


In this episode I have the opportunity to talk with not just one or two of our fellow alum, rather I have the pleasure of speaking with four: Steven Polunsky, Will Pilkington, Merideth Bastiani, and Angi English.

This team was part of the first cohort of Advanced Thinking in Homeland Security, also known as HSx. They came together to address the delay in public health alerts of communicable disease outbreaks. They specifically focused on accessing real-time health data and crafted five recommendations to enhance disease detection within the United States.

The best way to understand the breadth of this project is to get right to it and start my conversation with the team of One Health Alert System.
