Today Colleen and I sit down again with UNMC Dean of Public Health Dr. Ali Khan, Professor of Epidemiology, Former Director at the Office of Public Health Preparedness and Response for the CDC. He literally wrote the book in 2016 Titled: The Next Pandemic: On the Front Lines Against Humankind’s Gravest Dangers. It’s been a few months since we did our last episode with him and since then Coronavirus has exploded in the US, so we thought it was time to check back in.
Especially amidst the anti- maskers and Misinformation Master in the White House (not for much longer thank our lucky stars), it has been hard to decipher what the actual experts think and want us to do. So we want to go direct to the source. We asked people to send us their questions and concerns – Dr. Khan does not mince words and there will be no misinformation on this episode. He delivers his expertise straight and succinct. So thank you for joining and PLEASE for the love of all that is good and holy- share the episode in an effort to bolster public health measures and understanding of what is possible in tackling Covid-19.
Our First Conversation in July with Dr. Khan:
