Dr. Richard Besser ’81…

… a 13-year veteran of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, joins chief medical editor Dr. Timothy Johnson at ABC News as the senior health and medical editor.

The medical team’s newest member weighs in on swine flu concerns.
Before joining ABC, Besser served as acting director of the CDC and was the former head of the CDC’s Coordinating Office for Terrorism Preparedness and Emergency Response.

Here is a bit of video from the ABC site. It starts with a nice bio of Besser and then segues into swine flu precautions.

(Ronit, feel free to embed the video. I tried with no luck. Unless, like “more” it does not show in preview?)
