Haiti's Piggy Bank.30m
The Creole Pig was once the mainstay of the economy of rural Haiti. It served as the farmer's hedge against bad weather, crop failure and all sorts of unforeseen occurrences. In 1982, the US government responded to an African Swine Flu outbreak in the Dominican Republic by ordering the complete eradication of all of Haiti's Creole pigs. Produced by Grassroots International - a U.S. based social justice organization partnering with the National Congress of Papaye Peasant Movement (MPNKP) in Haiti - this video tells the story of the eradication, the hardship it caused, and the efforts of Haitian organizations to reintroduce this key economic asset.
Protecting the Healthcare Workforce in Pandemic Influenza.1h
Infection and contagion are the primary threats. Since healthcare workers are first responders, the potential for transmission from person to person is a risk. Responsibilities for healthcare workers extend beyond work as they are parents, spouses and caregivers. Listen to leading experts Cindy Lambdin, RN, UC Berkeley Center for Infectious Disease Preparedness; Howard Backer, MD, and Harvey Kayman, MD, both from the CA Dept. of Public Health. Presented by: The CA Dept. of Public Health Emergency Preparedness Office and The Center for Infectious Disease Preparedness and UC Berkeley School of Public Health.

SFSF Webinar Wildcard Risk Pandemic Flu.1h.17m
An SFSG client recently asked us to look at several scenarios that could have a high impact on his business. One was a public health crisis such as a bird flu outbreak. We examined the potential effect of outbreak scenarios from mild to pandemic, and decided the risk required more extensive research and preparation. SFSG’s John Thomas recently returned from Harvard University’s 3 day summit of experts on “Business Preparedness for Pandemic.” The U.S. Center for Disease Control and the World Health Organization each place a high priority on monitoring and preparing for a flu pandemic. Many experts believe there is a greater than 50% chance of a U.S. outbreak in the next ten years, with potentially significant impact on health safety and the economy. As we have talked to local, regional and national experts about this topic, very few are on the contrarian side of the likelihood of an outbreak. At SFSG we regularly consider risks to our clients’ financial future and risk inherent in investment strategies. We’d like to share our findings regarding Pandemic Flu Risk: how you can prepare your home and business or community, and our course of action to protect your investment portfolio
