Going Viral: Keeping Communities Healthy Through Public Health Emergency Preparedness

Washington, District of Columbia / June 11, 2014

The Atlantic discussed the latest innovations in medical technology and the policies in place to protect health and save lives from threats to our biosecurity.

America is becoming increasingly interconnected – physically, economically, digitally – and with that greater connection comes both increased vulnerabilities to public health hazards and increased opportunities for coordination in response. The Atlantic convened global health leaders for a program that explores how government officials can partner with business and community leaders to prepare for and respond to national health threats.
