Dr. Mitchell Schare on Emergency Airplane Evacuation

USA Today

Psychology Professor Mitchell Schare is quoted in the USA Today article “Emergency Evacuation? Leave Your Laptop!” by Bill McGee (a Hofstra alumnus). The article is about the seemingly inexplicable things people do during evacuation procedures (ie. grab bags out of overhead compartments) that add valuable time to everyone’s movement off the plane.

Dr. Schare is director of Hofstra’s Phobia and Trauma Clinic at the Joan and Arnold Saltzman Community Services Center, which offers treatment for people who suffer with a phobia of flying.
