CCDD Outreach Conference

The Center for Communicable Disease Dynamics (CCDD) at the Harvard School of Public health will be hosting our 5th annual outreach conference to increase diversity in mathematical modeling and public health!

The CCDD is committed to increasing diversity and fostering interest in public health, specifically mathematical modeling.  This conference for undergraduate students is interdisciplinary and incorporates various disciplines such as science, mathematical modeling, policy, and statistics. The Center’s goal is to create interest, generate opportunities, and foster students in the area of infectious disease modeling in order to contribute to the next generation of mathematical modelers. 

The 2016 conference will be held on Tuesday May 31st-Thursday June 2nd in Boston, MA. If you are not local to Boston, we offer travel scholarships that cover transportation (airfare or bus fare) and hotel costs. Please see additional information about the conference and how to apply with the link below.
