Programming code displayed on a computer screenThe University of Washington Population Health Initiative and the new UW Center for Disaster Resilient Communities are hosting a lunch-and-learn event regarding development of a regional data ecosystem model for public health emergency preparedness and response on Monday, February 26, 2024 from 12 – 1 p.m. Pacific in the Hans Rosling Center for Population Health, room 101.

Youngjun Choe, associate professor of Industrial & Systems Engineering, and Resham Patel, assistant teaching professor of Environmental & Occupational Health Sciences, will offer an overview of their interdisciplinary work, which will be followed by a question-and-answer period and time for informal networking lunch.

This event will draw from the findings of a Center for Disaster Resilient Communities’ project, which is funded by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s Office of Readiness and Response, to help facilitate the development of a five-year work plan for a Center for Public Health Emergency Preparedness and Response (PHEPR). Serving the Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington region, this PHEPR Center will seek to focus on improving the uptake of evidence-based strategies and interventions (EBSI) in PHEPR practice among state, local, tribal, and territorial (STLT) public health agencies and their partners.

Please RSVP if you plan to join the event.
