BioSense 2.0 Webinar Series – International Society for Disease Surveillance


This webinar series began in October 2013 and ran through May 2014. ISDS and the BioSense Redesign team collaborated on a regular webinar series to promote understanding and knowledge sharing among the community of potential and current BioSense 2.0 users. Topics range from local and state use of BioSense 2.0 to syndromic surveillance topic areas, such as influenza-like illness surveillance. Additionally, some of the webinars in this series focus specifically on the BioSense application to provide training and familiarize users with the full spectrum of BioSense 2.0 functionality.
