42: Disaster Ready

March 12, 2021


Public health emergencies ranging from weather-related events, man-made hazards and pathogen-based outbreaks and epidemics are far more common and increasing in frequency than one might imagine. The reality is there are many public health hazards with the potential to create catastrophic events that will have negative health outcomes for communities and the people who live in them as well as inflicting serious damage to the health systems and professionals responding to these crises and disasters. In this episode we meet disasters head-on at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security by visiting with nurse scientist and innovator Tener Goodwin Veenema, PhD, MPH, MS, RN, FAAN, who spends all her waking hours (and some sleepless nights) considering the science, technology, and innovations that are being deployed to strengthen health systems, build community resilience, and protect national security.
