The main objective of this course is to make you aware of the risks of pandemics, the potential problems we could all face should we be hit with a pandemic, and the precautions you would need to take to keep you, your family, and your patients safe.

Pandemics not only pose serious health risks, but they can negatively impact businesses, travel, and community services like police and fire departments and schools.
