I’m attending a lecture today in Dublin given by Dr John Loonsk,
Associate Director for Informatics and acting director of the National
Center for Public Health Informatics at the Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention in Atlanta.
It’s entitled "The Development of Disease Surveillance Information Systems in the United States
– Challenges, Opportunities and Solutions".
This pdf from the Food Safety Authority of Ireland
gives some background to the speaker and the event. An article from
Healthcare Informatics in 2002 puts Loonsk in the category of Top 10 IT Innovators.
many thanks to John and Aoibheann for organising this event…
