    Description:
    Guoyan Zhang and Anthony Llau, Miami-Dade County Health Department, have been instrumental in developing the School-Based Absentee Surveillance System (SBASS), which uses school absentee data to identify outbreaks as part of syndromic surveillance. Gail Potter focuses on developing analytical methodology to model infectious disease transmission over social networks, with a recent focus on modeling influenza transmission in schools. Historically, there has been little coordination between monitors and modelers of school disease transmission. However, given the progress presented in these two 30-minute presentations and the growing understanding of the importance of schools in infectious disease transmission, the potential benefits of and possibilities for coordination will be discussed.

  2. This video is one in a series for Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, a cancer treatment center ranked as one of the best in the US.

    As a cancer survivor myself, having doctors talk about their mission and their passion for patient care in a bedside manner is critically important. And very much helps the marketing of SCCA.

    Not only do these look good... they were done on a very slim budget.

  3. This is one of a series of profiles on the amazing doctors and care at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance.

    The visual approach is to be more bedside in manner and explain medical terminology in lay terms. Feedback from prospective patients that view these is it allows them to learn more about the institution and choose a doctor they want to work with.

    Shot with either two 5D Mark II cameras are in conjunction with a Canon 305 camcorder. Soon we'll be using Mark III's.
