Abstract

2018 marked the 100th anniversary of one of the deadliest disease outbreaks in recorded history. Influenza infected an estimated one-third of the world's population and claimed over 500,000 lives in the United States and at least 50 million worldwide. Panelists examined the factors contributing to the historical event and succeeding outbreaks, and the role of state and federal agencies and laws in preventing, controlling and mitigating future communicable disease emergencies.
