Week 8: 2011-04-28
Today I’m asking our professionals to weigh in on a question posed by Dan, one of our readers and contributors:
What diseases would likely show up with a disruption of life as we know it? Haiti saw a marked increase in cholera after the earthquake. If water, sewage, hospital services are all diminished, what diseases would likely show up and what are their respective treatments?
You, too, are welcome to post your responses and questions below.
Check back soon and see what our panel of over 100 professionals has to say.– Doc Cindy
