Defining Disability for Syndromic Surveillance: Data to Action
Virtual Monday, April 29, 2024 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM EST

ASTHO will host a webinar offering a unique perspective on defining disability within syndromic surveillance. The discussion will show how this definition of disability can be used to promote health for people with disabilities during public health emergencies. ASTHO and Thought Bridge panelists will explain how viewing disability as a demographic can help to better understand the disparate impact of public health emergencies on people with disabilities.

Healthcare providers, medical coders, syndromic surveillance experts, and public health agency staff are encouraged to attend to acquire the tools to leverage data-driven approaches to enhance healthcare outcomes for people with disabilities. This webinar will be held virtually via Zoom, featuring presentations and live discussions.
