August 13, 2013

Linda Landesman, Instructor in the Online MPH in Public Health Practice program, has co-authored a book titled Case Studies in Public Health Preparedness and Response to Disasters with Isaac Weisfuse. The book was recently published by Jones & Bartlett Learning.

Through a presentation of 16 case studies, the authors examine the broad range of public health scenarios through the lens of emergency preparedness and planning. Scenarios range from extreme weather events such as Superstorm Sandy and emerging infections such as the H1N1 pandemic flu to man-made tragedies like the Madrid train bombings and threats of bioterrorism, all with increasingly profound impacts on the health of populations around the globe.

The book is designed for students across a wide spectrum of health and safety disciplines and demonstrates the application of public health preparedness competencies established by the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH).
