RANE Insights: Lessons in Pandemic Preparedness

May 20, 2020 | 21:44 GMT

In this podcast, RANE Founder David Lawrence sits down with Dr. Isaac Weisfuse to discuss his perspectives on the current pandemic and the lessons learned from his experiences working in New York on its 2006 pandemic preparedness plan. This happened as an aggressive strain of the flu was making its way across Asia and the Middle East.

Dr. Weisfuse is a medical epidemiologist with over 25 years of experience in public health at the local and national levels. As a deputy commissioner, his responsibilities included the control of infectious diseases in New York and public health emergency preparedness and response. He led his agency as an incident commander in a number of emergency activations including the 9/11 attack, New York's anthrax attack and the 2009 influenza pandemic. He is now an adjunct professor at Cornell University Public Health.
