Developing a Platform for Monitoring Foodborne Illness and Unsafe Food - Elaine Nsoesie, PhD

Monday 4/9 12:00PM - 1:00PM
1155 Public Health, Foster Conf. Rm.(former 1149)
Dr. Elaine Nsoesie, Assistant Professor of Global Health at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, University of Washington, will talk about illness from diseases caused by the consumption of unsafe foods as a global public health problem and these illnesses and outbreaks are often underreported.  To improve surveillance of foodborne illnesses, public health researchers and practitioners are using non-traditional data from social media, business and product review sites, and crowdsourcing platforms for monitoring reports of food poisoning, target restaurant inspections and to identify outbreaks not reported to traditional systems.  She will cover the use of data from these non-traditional data sources for foodborne illness and outbreak surveillance in cities across the United States.
