An April 28 Al Jazeera news update quotes Susan Michaels-Strasser, PhD, MPH, RN, FAAN, ICAP’s senior director of human resources for health (HRH) development, on missed opportunities to strengthen the U.S. public health system that could have greatly lessened the impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
