This week on EM Weekly we are talking about public heath and emergency management. Public health has always had an important role in the safety of the community and emergency management is one of the areas that we are seeing growth in this discipline. In fact, some people in the our community think that the CDC or Public Health should take the lead when it comes to EM. We are discussing that and more with Paula Buchanan Guest Bio Paula Buchanan is a doctoral student in Emergency Management. Her research focuses on the intersection of emergency management, health services, and information technology systems, specifically on how socio-technical systems function as a communication channel to provide populations with information to mitigate the impact of public health issues associated with disasters. Ms. Buchanan is interested in using mixed methods to more effectively understand the multi-faceted nature of her interdisciplinary research interests. She is also passionate about using social media, information technology, and data visualization tools to effectively communicate with targeted audiences. Ms. Buchanan has professional experience in communication, university-level instruction, and project management. Her work experience includes over ten years as a university-level business school instructor.
