    Hi Everyone,

    Have anyone come across any free or low cost educational resources that might be interesting or useful to a fellow LHIT member? Feel free to share in a comment below 😊.

    Here is something from free course material from MIT.

    During the Preparedness Summit two weeks ago, MITRE presented a session that I felt was really informative about the Sara Alert tool, how departments have utilized it, lessons learned and how they are beginning to plan to use it for other purposes beyond COVID after.  I wanted to share the recording with the community, in case any of you were wondering about the tool or considering using it.   Description and Recording Links below.   

    Session Title:  Sara Alert™: Empowering Public Health and Communities to Mitigate the Spread of COVID-19
    Description: Sara Alert™, an open-source tool built by public health for public health, supports efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. In this session, we will discuss lessons learned from health departments who have implemented Sara Alert™; how it has empowered communities; and how it can be used for future diseases.
