Quickly Noted: Disaster Surveillance Conference Call

December 17, 2007

Disaster Health DeptI do apologize for being absent as of late. I hope to step up posting shortly. In the meantime, I wanted to make you all aware of a conference call being given by COCA, the CDC’s Clinician Outreach and Communication Activity group tomorrow (Tuesday, December 18, 2007).

The conference call is free and deals with disaster surveillance, that is, disease surveillance after a disaster occurs. They’ll be using, as a case study, the response to Hurricane Katrina. As I’ve said before, surveillance is the one part of disaster response that we do every day, so focusing on that aspect now (in terms of funding, training and prioritization) will only help us in a disaster situation.

Here’s the information on calling in:
