Consulting for Institutions

Disaster Planning, Leadership, Training & Performance

Mark has consulted on dozens of disasters, involving the health of millions of people throughout the world.

Public health emergencies place an enormous burden on both public and private institutions. Decision makers have little time and opportunity to perform assessments, monitor progress and evaluate the results of disaster-related health issues.

It’s not an exaggeration to say that disasters can cost billions of dollars AND affect the lives of millions of people.

Dr. Mark Keim partners with institutions of all sizes to create disaster management products and services based on scientific evidence and best practices.

“I advise critical infrastructure holders and operators on security, risk, and safety issues. During the COVID-19 crisis, I needed specialized expertise related to virus transmission and protective measures. Mark was a fantastic resource for this. 

He is knowledgeable, informative, and highly giving of his time.  He was able to distill and clearly communicate detailed scientific information and put it in both historical and public policy perspective.
