https://www.physiciansweekly.com/poll-finds-older-adults/ Per titles ... AARP is a non-profit as the definition has been readjusted. A 50 year old isn't really an "older adult", especially when "older" adults involves the "aged" and the charts get plotted with the commingled categories of healthy 50 year olds and the 78 yo invalid under care. Twenty five year olds aren't fully prepared when viewed as a demographic bloc. Dr Kumar Dharmarajan is WRONG. There are MUCH "formal guidelines" on basic preparedness for seniors. I have a lot of the material here - and extra copies I distribute. How much detail is needed in re secondary power sources ?! I can guess physicians, as a demographic bloc, are as unprepared as the rest of the national categories. How many physicians drive a 4 X 4 vehicle to max out getting to their work station, whether a hospital or makeshift clinic and the roads are in bad shape ? How many have kits in vehicle ? at home ? on their person ? Is there a fire extinguisher in their vehicle ? Does the physician have a smoke evac mask ? Polls are like the "Dewey Defeats Truman" headline. Truman won. Judge not but don't worry. The entire nation, except for a few like at MSF.COM, are not prepared. cc: Major Margaret H.L.
