BioSense 2.0 Presentation
Join us for a presentation by Taha Kass-Hout on the CDC's new BioSense 2.0 system for collecting, aggregating and analyzing health data from around the country. 
Using the latest technology, BioSense 2.0 integrates current health data shared by health departments from a variety of sources to provide insight on the health of communities and the country. By getting more information faster, local, state, and federal public health partners can detect and respond to more outbreaks and health events more quickly.
