Season 5 Episode 5: Disaster Response & Forensic Pathology With Stephen Cordner AM FAIIA

Mass amounts of death create emotional and logistical problems, and have far-reaching ramifications on global health security. In this final episode, join James Cafferky for an interview with Professor Stephen Cordner AM FAIIA on forensic pathology.
