Data and informatics are available as tools to inform and promote public health as never before. Now we can track and analyze microbes and diseases through bodies, populations, and places.

What does this kind of biosurveillance mean, especially in a world where health policy has become increasingly political? Investigative journalist and author Sonia Shah sits down with Larry Madoff, MD, director of ProMED-mail, Amy Fairchild, PhD, MPH, associate vice president for Faculty and Academic Affairs at the Health Science Center at Texas A&M University, and Lauren Flicker, associate director of the Montefiore Einstein Center for Bioethics to discuss how best to predict and prepare for the next impending outbreak. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=353350 Museum of the City of New York Museum of the City of New York
