Been working on federal healthcare strategy past 2 years, and now dipping toes into tech w/different BI, DS, and cloud trainings/certs. Recently learned of JHU's Applied Health Science Informatics MA. Q's: 1. Does anyone here currently work on something similar to what I've described here? If so, what's your background? If not, why do you think this work is not occuring? 2. How popular (or not popular) do you think pandemic planning will be post-COVID? 3. Can anyone provide reviews of JHU's Applied Health Science Informatics program? 4. From your perspective, how could I best prepare for the work I've described here? If this work is not happening/anticipated, what other career avenues would you recommend? Thanks you so much!

Talk to your doctor and do research. You never know what’s going on inside your brain.

Has the blush come off the rose for this shining city on a hill? Have any other foreign fish in the US been asking yourself why we made the conscious decision to seek out a life in this country?

Never have I had to worry this much about going to the grocery store. The reaction of society here towards these issues is also dismal. Is it worth it?
