WACO, Texas – Baylor University Environmental Scientist Benjamin Ryan spoke Tuesday during a webinar on pandemics put on by the World Health Organization and the United Nations.

Dr. Ryan introduced a scorecard system which can support and strengthen planning and coordination among disaster managers and health workers.

FOX44 News spoke to Dr. Ryan before the webinar about how the scorecard system could be used right now.
