As a quick skim, the CUIPPRP may be useful in getting simple instructions across, but a cover-to-cover analysis left the impression that a team of students with varying backgrounds pieced it together. Naturally, as a biologist, I tend to see a good portion of the CUIPPRP as unnecessary when life is at stake. On the other hand, guidance by those with a biological background will become vital for nearly everyone to perform any activity, at least until the route of transmission is identified and more is learned about the pathogen. Human life should always be the top priority, and the majority of the CUIPPRP does not put enough emphasis on the single fact that will help answer more difficult questions than any proposed budget or prescribed course of action.

during a flu pandemic or other infectious disease outbreak." Journal of Business Continuity & Emergency Planning 2.3 (2008): 305-321. Business Source Complete. EBSCO. Web. 13 Dec. 2010. Dima, this is an interesting essay, but I feel like you haven ’t made your case using existing data or established theory. I’d like to see primary research to back up your prescription for improving CU ’s readiness for a disease outbreak. You talk a fair amount about why you think current policies are inadequate (though, again, you don ’t provide statistics that illustrate this point), but you don’t provide information about why your improvements are based upon solid theory and are backed-up by previous studies.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
