Pandemic on the horizon? Maybe two. This is our reminder that pandemics and biologic events usually start small with subtle warnings. Those warnings are there now. We should be paying attention. MERS-CoV is gaining momentum and the future of H7N9 is unclear. Now’s the time to become engaged in “Determined Awareness” and educate yourself - get in tune with the CDC by visiting their website, visit your local health department website and coordinate with responder groups. 
Action now will pay off.
