High-profile diseases such as Ebola and Zika grab headlines, but state health policymakers know that emergency preparedness begins long before the first news stories—or symptoms—appear. This panel features state perspectives on public health preparedness and outbreak investigation policies, including strategies for navigating the political and media messaging challenges that can accompany emergencies and outbreaks. Panelists will also address the links and intersections between infectious disease strategy and state Medicaid and emergency management policies.
