As alarming stories about new pathogens like the Ebola virus or Mad Cow Disease fill today's headlines, scientists face a test of their abilities to contain them. But public health officials face a crisis of their own, because even when effective treatments become available, efforts to control disease often fall short.After the Cure was written to improve the prospects for effective management of AIDS and other public health crises. Martin Levin and Mary Bryna Sanger draw on cases of previous large-scale public health initiatives to show how management effectiveness can meet threats to public health.Focusing on AIDS as the most compelling contemporary example of the need for change, the authors advocate a commonsense approach that seeks to minimize the chances of failure. They encourage health officials to exercise "strategic skepticism" by developing plans that anticipate potential problems -- such as scientific controversy over a vaccine's effectiveness or media sensationalism -- which could arise from flaws in program design and implementation.Case studies involving polio, swine flu, childhood immunization, reemergent TB, and the early AIDS experiences demonstrate the variety of managerial problems that can confront such initiatives. By reviewing the lessons of these cases, the authors suggest how their approach can be applied to the management of AIDS and future public health threats. They then present both a critique of the early mismanagement of the AIDS crisis and a scenario for "the day after an AIDS vaccine is discovered".Because epidemics are likely to increase, After the Cure clearly demonstrates the importance of anticipating obstacles to their management throughskillful scenario writing. Combining careful analysis with practical advice, it shows that in the public health arena, management matters as much as medicine.

"Build-A-Boob" is the inspirational story of one woman's refusal to give up on having her breasts and her life restored after breast cancer radiation destroyed her chest at the age of 46. Breast cancer affects us all. Most of us know someone who has it or has had it. What we don't know and don't often hear about are the stories of pain and the physical and emotional scars that are left behind. This is about survival after the cure. Her story offers hope to millions of women, showing how actually using liposuction can rebuild a breast by regenerating one's own skin. Very few plastic surgeons are currently using this procedure and this is an important issue for all women. The technique of using liposuction to rebuild a breast in its entirety is not new. What is new is that Lisa Masters' stems cells from her fat totally restored the skin and fat damaged by radiation allowing the eventual insertion of a permanent implant. All of this was done through trial and error, and her plastic surgeon, Dr. Sergio Zamora says that this procedure works every single time. The process took four and half years to complete. In addition, she addresses medical insurance concerns and how her HMO, Florida Health Care BC/BS, supported her through this lengthy process. Lisa, like millions after being diagnosed with invasive breast cancer, went through the typical therapies. She underwent two lumpectomies, chemotherapy, a bilateral mastectomy followed by immediate reconstruction with the insertion of tissue expanders and a hysterectomy. When she healed from the surgeries, she had radiation therapy. It only took 15 additional surgeries, but, Lisa Masters now has two breasts and a purpose to spread the word and break the silence of those who live with the scars that breast cancer has left behind. The book is written from her perspective which includes 25 very graphic breast photos from beginning to end along with her own photo in order to make the story personal. The medical photos alone tell a story of success and they are difficult to look at. However, she feels those photos must be shown to the world and must be connected to a face; her face. Build-A-Boob talks about Lisa Masters' family and their life prior to cancer. The book also talks about the toil this disease took on everyone involved. "Build-A-Boob" is a story of failure, pain, determination and success told with humor and optimism that involves a tenacious plastic surgeon and a woman who never settled. Included is a "Forward" written by plastic surgeon Dr. Sergio Zamora, Daytona Beach, FL
