Montgomery County APC closing; PHPM ending as well.

From the Montgomery County Advanced Practice Center:

“It is with great sadness that we inform you that as of September, 29, 2012, the Advanced Practice Center (APC) Program will be closing its doors.   After eight years of addressing public health preparedness challenges and showcasing innovative practices, the Montgomery APC has reached the end of its existence and will no longer be creating new tools and resources nor providing technical assistance.   …
In anticipation of the close, the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) has started the transition of all existing APC products to the easily accessible APC website (  All the tools and resources created over the life of the APC program will still be available to you-at no cost-through the APC website. ”


So this seems like an appropriate time to end this blog as well.  I encourage those interested in modeling to read the Punk Rock Operations Research blog maintained by Laura McLay; it has a Facebook presence as well.
