Expert Pitch

Newswise — "We are probably not well prepared at all for any type of pandemic or any type of major epidemic," warns Dr. Cecilia Rokusek, assistant dean for education, planning and research at Nova Southeastern University's College of Osteopathic Medicine.

"From a 'public health,' personal perspective, we need to be prepared," Rokusek cautions.

"We develop complacency oftentimes as an American population. We think it's not going to effect us...That's the biggest challenge for those of us in healthcare," she says.
