2021 PUBLIC HEALTH STORIES #3

Curated public health stories for this week from my reading shelf for Week 3 of 2021.

I.

There are a series of executive orders that came out the past week. But, my favorite is this one obviously – Ensuring Data Driven Response to COVID-19 and Future High Consequence Public Health Threats


II.

A long read again. But its an interesting look into the COVID-19 pandemic experiences across the world- the commonalities are differences are worth reflection.

Read The New Yorker piece here.

III.
Because all of us including weary public health workers are looking forward to the light at the end of the tunnel – this was the best demonstration of the transformative power of poetry showing us just that.

"For there is always light,
if only we're brave enough to see it.
If only we're brave enough to be it."
     - Amanda Gorman, National Youth Poet Laureate
