Education and Training Committee

Committee Chair: Larissa May, MD

Board Representative: Julie Pavlin, MD, MPH

The Education and Training committee conference call is held on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 12pm EST.

This committee will help plan and coordinate to organize workshop activities at the National Syndromic Surveillance Conferences. It will identify useful educational, training and reference materials for the website. It will seek additional venues for sharing knowledge and promoting research, including workshops at other conferences, universities, public health training centers, and distance learning sites. This committee will target much of its work towards public health practitioners and students of public health, with an emphasis on the practical application of disease surveillance methods.
