Fits and Starts: Reactionary Biodefense

Event Details
Type: 
Seminar/Webinar
Date: 
October 9, 2018 - 10:00am - 3:00pm

In October 2001, the nation responded to letters containing anthrax, at a time when it was still recovering from the terrorist attacks on September 11th. Since then, other biological events – such as the H1N1 influenza pandemic in 2009-2010 and the outbreak and global spread of Ebola in 2014 – have tested our national security. In addition to response and recovery activities, we also reacted to those events with new policy and programs. Over the years, some of these still exist, while others have languished and disappeared. Join us on October 9, 2018, when we hold a meeting to reexamine the anthrax events of 2001, as well as subsequent biological events. We want to know where we are now and what else we need to do to ensure national biodefense.

2018 Public Health Informatics Conference

Conference
Date: 
August 19, 2018 (All day) - August 23, 2018 (All day)

It’s been nearly two years since the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) released its multi-article supplement, “Public Health Informatics: A Call to Action,” in the Journal of Public Health Management and Practice. Since then, it’s only become clearer that to effectively serve communities in today’s information-driven world, public health – and its cross-sector partners – must advance and strengthen its capability to transform data into action (e.g., services, interventions, and policies). But forging that capability is no easy feat. Challenges such as underdeveloped information technology (IT) infrastructure, lack of training, and insufficient workforce capacity have made public health informatics seem either intimidating or vastly inaccessible to public health professionals. Despite this, there is a role for informatics within every health department. The 2018 PHI Conference exists to help you learn that role through sessions, workshops, and peer-sharing opportunities that:
