Using HealthMap's Web-based Risk Analysis Tools Before and During Public Health

Free Webinar: Using HealthMap's Web-based risk analysis tools before and during public health emergencies
Leveraging bilateral information flows during the Haiti cholera outbreak

Cost: Free

Date: Wednesday, August 17, 2011, 2:00pm – 3:00pm EDT

Presenter: David Scales, MD, PhD

Overview: This webinar will use HealthMap's experience during the 2010 cholera outbreak in Haiti to examine emerging data sources for epidemic surveillance, the use of social media and other new media and how all this fits together in regard to emergency preparedness and response. Dr. Scales contends that we are a network of networks reaching out into our respective communities while sharing experience and lessons learned in expert forums. HealthMap's experience suggests that if we can leverage bilateral information flows between our respective networks, our information and communication efforts will benefit, especially in emergency preparedness and response.
