    There has been a lot of progress in medicine and science in understanding and preventing infectious diseases over time; however, these diseases still threaten human health. A variety of prevention or intervention measures may be available, and it is important to understand which combination of these measures would be most impactful, when and where, particularly under resource limitations.  In this presentation we will provide examples on how operations research and analytics methods can  be used in supporting public health interventions for infectious diseases.

     These webinars are an initiative of the INFORMS Practice Section and organized by Dr. Patricia Neri (patricianerib@gmail.com) and Dr. Carrie Beam (carrie@carriebeamconsulting.com).
