As we inaugurate a new president, join the School of Public Policy for a provocative conversation about how past presidents have faced unpredictable crises, such as terror attacks, massive storms, and an economic collapse throughout our history on Monday, January 23, 2017, at 6:30 pm in Calabasas Seminar Room 295. 

Tevi Troy, CEO of the American Health Policy Institute and former deputy secretary of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services will speak about his book, Shall We Wake the President?: Two Centuries of Disaster Management in the Oval Office, which looks at the ever changing role of the president during times of disasters while also detailing how smart policies can assist us in avoiding future crisis and/or assist in how to best react to disasters should they occur.

Dr. Troy's book, Shall We Wake the President?:  Two Centuries of Disaster Management in the Oval Office will be available for purchase at the event with cash or check only.
