Event Description

Mark your calendars for this event held every third Thursday from 5:30 to 7 p.m. A short presentation is followed by a lively discussion on a different subject each month.

Forecasting the flu (and other things)
 
With new outbreaks of illness around the globe (think zika virus and even the common cold), forecasting the potential spread of infection has become even more important. Come by for a brief introduction to the subject of disease forecasting and how new social media tools are helping make predictions even more accurate. The short presentation will be followed by a lively discussion. Presented by Nick Generous with the Lab's Information Systems and Modeling group. Join us.
