Posted In: Alumni Headlines

Dr. J.D. PolkWhat do Homeland Security, NASA, and the Chilean Miner Rescue have in common?

One thing they have in common is ATSU Alumnus Dr. J.D. Polk. This session was given as part of a training exercise in advanced disaster preparedness but it is absolutely fascinating from a variety of perspectives. If you can’t watch the whole video, then we highly recommend at least perusing it. Here are some time stamps to key sections.

  •  6:50 – Black Swan Events and White Swan Events – Why Clinicians need to expand perspectives from whole patients to whole community thinking.
  • 12:00 – Part 1 – Overview of Homeland Security. Perspectives to Pandemics and Community Health
