RIMS Podcast—Swine Flu and Pandemic Plan of Action, Part I: Fact vs. Fiction 5/1/2009


The Risk and Insurance Management Society (RIMS) has made available a podcast series, Swine Flu and the Pandemic Plan of Action, to help risk practitioners during the swine flu epidemic. In the first podcast, Fact vs. Fiction, Bill Coffin, publisher and editorial director of Risk Management magazine, gets the inside story from Michael Liebowitz, past president of RIMS and director of risk management and insurance at New York University. They will discuss how bad the swine flu may become, what insurance implications will stem from it and what can be done to manage the risk swine flu poses to companies large and small.
