To Whom This May Concern --

ABC News is preparing a one-hour prime time news special on the unique risks 
posed by infectious disease to the American public.  We hope to responsibly 
present the risks posed by highly infectious viruses and bacteria to the 
American public without being unnecessarily alarmist.

I am very interested in hearing how those of you in the scientific community 
think such a program should be shaped.  What issues must be addressed?  Who 
are the important experts to be included in such a broadcast? Where has the 
media been lax on this story?  I greatly appreciate any suggestions, 
comments or questions you have.  Please be assured that any communication to 
me in response to this message will be treated as an "off-the-record" 

Thank you --
