There were a lot of questions following Nkuchia M’ikanatha’s seminar today about disease surveillance. He’s been instrumental in publishing two books – one called “Concepts and Methods in Infectious Disease Surveillance” and another called “Infectious Disease Surveillance” that’s available as an e-book from the library. I have copies of both these books, and thought it would be nice to discuss methods for and uses of disease surveillance on Monday (at 4:30, in W-230 MSC). While you don’t have to come with any prior knowledge or opinions, it seems like something that’s relevant from a global health perspective.

Our purpose and policies
All posts to this blog are a reflection of the views of that particular author, not the CIDD Graduate Student Association as a whole. In order to keep discussion open but directed, any comments or opinions about a specific post should be directed to the author of that post, either publicly in a comment on that specific post or in private correspondence.
These policies are in place because this blog is meant to be a place for individual grad students to discuss and explore their own ideas, moderated by the CIDD Graduate Student Association as a whole, not solely a place for the CIDD GSA to collectively post about things already discussed by the group. Directing responses to specific posts at other graduate students involved with this blog is likely to be fruitless as they may not be familiar with the subject at hand.
