7 chrobes Will the communities affected by recent hurricanes be able to rebuild before another natural disaster comes right back for the same area? National and international (I'm thinking about Haiti specifically which repeatedly gets pounded by natural disasters). At what point do people need to permanently move away from high risk areas as climate change worsens?
4 BH_Quicksilver Has there been an instance in the past of the United States where a natural disaster/multiple natural disasters have displaced so many people at once? What is the impact of two different natural disasters happening at different parts of the US in such close proximity to each other on our ability to provide aid and relief to each of these communities?
4 m_s_samuels Large-scale disasters like Harvey and Irma get a lot of immediate attention, and bring in a lot of immediate aid, but what do you see as the long-term work that would most benefit the communities affected and/or protect other communities against future disasters?
4 BestWishes24 I've read recently about the severe impact of both Harvey and Irma on illegal immigrants who do not feel able or cannot seek out help in the wake of natural disasters. How have you seen the health of this population affected and what steps would you recommend to better outcomes?
4 mongooseondaloose Hi Sandro! BUSPH '16 here. At parties and family gatherings, it's still something of a mouthfull to explain the work--what's your Public Health Elevator Pitch?
3 HelmedHorror What are your thoughts on the ethics of making public health advisories/recommendations based on correlational data that are [true at an epidemiological level of analyses but may not be true for every given individual](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ecological_fallacy), when the more proximate explanation is readily available? I notice that public health organization do this very often. For example, if we know at an epidemiological level that people who do/are/have **X** action/condition/environment disproportionately develop **Y** health problem, but we also know that the true proximate cause of Y is **Z**, and Z just happens to correlate with X. Do you think it's ethically defensible or indefensible to mislead the public about causal relationships when you know that doing so will in the end result in better health outcomes on account of the fact that enough people are statistically illiterate?
3 meaghandeth Who are the people most vulnerable to PTSD after a natural disaster? And are the symptoms different from other instances of PTSD, say that suffered as a result of military combat?
3 coryrenton what are some public health problems that are disproportionately present in the boston area and/or boston student population (compared to other metro areas)?
3 Overwelm Hi! This is such a perfectly timed AmA, my undergraduate research focused on physiology and ecology though I did try and take courses that were related to health and medical fields. I'm planning on going onto grad school in epidemiology Fall 2018. What are some things I should be thinking about during this process to be a more attractive option to schools and be more prepared when I do start?
2 chatgrand Hi, thanks for doing this AMA! Can you please give a brief explainer on the idea that climate change is worsening natural disasters?
1 ptyler16 With Senator Sanders introducing a Medicare For All single payer bill today co-sponsored by 16 democratic senators, I am curious what your thoughts are on this type of sweeping reform of health insurance in the United States? Would taking a more gradual approach (implementing public option) be better strategy? Appreciate your feedback!

1 SkullyDraws What have been the most health-damaging disasters to Americans in general category terms and in an event-based historical context?
1 rakelllama Disclaimer -- i do health policy research in an academic setting, but my office studies different stuff and I specifically do GIS, so i guess that's where i'm coming from before i ask a question. my question: how did you go from epidemiology in a public health setting to landing on natural disasters and their effects on public health? i guess when i think of epidemiology, i think of like John Snow & cholera. natural disasters make me think more about them being an 'act of god' and even though climate change is definitely in part caused by humans which could be impacting the frequency of natural disasters, would you call them epidemics?
1 ruinevil Do you do any projects with the *other* school of Public Health in town?
1 StevenSCGA What typically happens to people who need resources from a hospital, for example, if they need emergency services or prescription refill, etc? I'm assuming these facilities will be shut down for weeks potentially before they can open up again.
