Pandemic Preparedness: Are We Ready?

Pandemic Preparedness: Are We Ready?
We’re going to address a question many of us have wondered about, but few people want to think about: Are we ready to deal with a worldwide spread of infectious disease?

Among the potential threats is the Avian, or bird flu, which you've probably heard a lot about lately.
