Colonel Mason from Examiner writes about Lua's work within the government. Mason spoke to Michael and Juliette Kayyem about how silos are getting in the way of quick action from government response teams, and how communication has to be improved to keep up with the increasing scale of emergency situations.

We’re going to be cutting across all boundaries because the risks we face cut across boundaries, whether mother nature or public health pandemics or even a terrorist attack. Lua can manage across those silos and that’s a real value.
