It's easier than ever to move people, animals, and materials around the planet today, but these same advances have made pandemics nearly inevitable. The director of CIDRAP (the University of Minnesota's Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy) and now a member of President Biden's COVID-19 Advisory Board, Michael Osterholm here explains the scientific details behind epidemics and what can be done to protect ourselves. As a proponent of consequential epidemiology (attempting to change what will likely happen if we don't act), Osterholm defines the resources and programs we need to develop now to face the challenges of resistant viruses, bioterrorism, and disastrous pandemics.
