What do bridges and public health have in common?
from The Huffington Post
Infrastructure is never quite as interesting or exciting as innovation. The grand opening of a new building incorporating all the latest integrated technology is far more exciting than bridge repairs. In our fascination for the innovation, we often turn a blind eye to our nation's crumbling infrastructure. In the United States as of 2005, one quarter of our bridges were structurally deficient or functionally obsolete and more than 100 levees weref "at risk of failure." Our nation's public health infrastructure shares many commonalities with our nation's brick and mortar infrastructure. It, too, has been neglected over the years and is only in the public eye when there is a disease outbreak or a disaster.
