H1N1 & Higher Ed: Lessons Learned: Pandemic Influenza Tools, Tips, and Takeaways from the Big 10+2 Universities   [open pdf - 0B]

"Colleges and universities played key roles in the nation's response to the 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic. The goal of The Big 10 + 2 Universities H1N1 Lessons Learned Project has been to find and tell the success stories from this experience and to raise the many issues yet to be resolved before the next influenza pandemic. Information was collected through (1) key informant interviews conducted between March and July 2010, (2) an online conference hosted May 18, 2010, for the Big 10+2 universities, their respective state health departments, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) partners, and (3) follow-up interviews. University of Minnesota coordination and staffing support for the project was provided by the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRAP), Academic Health Center, Boynton Health Service, and School of Public Health, with CDC funding provided by the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO). In addition to this report, CIDRAP has (1) posted the webinar and presentation slides from the May 18 event and (2) published Promising Practices for higher education at www.PublicHealthPractices.org."
