The public health practice committee conference call is held on the 4th Monday of each month at 12pm EDT.

This committee will reach out to the public health community to work with users of advanced disease surveillance systems, both to document the utility of surveillance systems and to identify the continued needs of public health practitioners. The committee’s goal is to ensure that the viewpoint and perspectives of public health practitioners are shared and represented within the Society; and that the Society is not out of touch with the ultimate goal of improving surveillance. In addition, this committee will seek to increase the value added by advanced disease surveillance by working directly with health monitors to ensure that their objectives are consistent with the available data and that they have access to the methods and resources needed to realize and benefit from this added value.
