Syndromic Surveillance Symposium

CSTE, in collaboration with the CDC/NSSP, convened the inaugural 2020 Syndromic Surveillance Symposium virtually from November 17-19, 2020. 

CSTE partnered with Kahuina Consulting to help provide an engaging and interactive virtual forum for the syndromic surveillance community to exchange experiences, share best practices, and take away innovative solutions and strategies for advancing syndromic surveillance practice. Attendees had the opportunity to learn new skills from technical experts, from the basics to latest analytical techniques. There was also a forum to discuss the future of the NSSP Community of Practice and increasing syndromic surveillance capacity at the state, local, and national levels. The first two days concluded with informal sessions hosted by colleagues (not included in any event resources).

All events were be held on CSTE’s RingCentral platform. Recordings and PDFs of presented slides have been included in this final event packet.
