for a timely and topical discussion of the risks and precautions everyone should know when returning to on-site work during the coronavirus pandemic.
Dr. Koonin founded Health Preparedness Partners, LLC (HPP) after her 30+ year career with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). During that time, she led the development of national pandemic influenza preparedness and response plans and policies, served in leadership positions for multiple national and international emergency responses, conducted large-format exercises, and consulted with businesses, state and local governments, healthcare facilities, non-governmental organizations, academia, and ministries of health around the world, to improve emergency preparedness.
Dr. Koonin was one of the architects for development of CDC’s published “social distancing” guidance in 2007 and is recognized as an international expert in emergency infectious disease preparedness and response. She was the originator of private sector pandemic and emergency response programs at CDC, and has extensive experience working with businesses and non-governmental organizations. In January 2020, she was asked by CDC to provide consultation for the national COVID-19 response, providing expert advice to CDC’s Incident Management leadership.
