As a future leader in the field of public health, you may face many chronic health threats to various systems. As you work to combat these threats and ensure community wellness, you are likely to become an agent of social change. This objective may be more challenging, although more critical, to achieve in matters such as in public health emergencies and outbreaks. For leaders, outbreaks, epidemics, and pandemics elicit critical and timely attention to situations in public health.

In this week’s article by Osterholm, the author presents a possibility of another pandemic. Using this Learning Resource as well as 2–4 additional resources you may find from the Walden Library, current events, etc., consider your leadership perspective during a pandemic influenza outbreak in the United States.

As you collaborate with your group, individually, select one of the following leadership roles that would respond during this outbreak:

Director, FEMA
Director, CDC
Governor of an afflicted state
Incident Response Commander
Response Leader, American Red Cross (or other non-governmental organization)
After selecting your leadership role, use a systems approach to work with your group to establish immediate response in preventing another pandemic.
