Hello world!

Welcome to the Public Health Preparedness Modeling blog. This blog is here to support public health emergency preparedness planners and the researchers who are developing models for this community. I welcome comments about the subjects covered here and particular models.

I’m Jeffrey W. Herrmann, the blog moderator. My background is in operations research and industrial engineering. Over the last few years I’ve been working in this area, particularly on models of mass dispensing and vaccination clinics (aka PODs). Please visit our project web site for more details about this project.

Please comment on the posts here or send me a note if you’d like to post something. You can reach me at jwh2@umd.edu.
