This conference aims to bring together undergraduate students from underrepresented groups who have an interest in public health and mathematical modeling, and are studying quantitative disciplines at their home institutions. The Conference will combine lectures on infectious disease epidemiology and mathematical modeling with professional development and networking opportunities and hands-on sessions where students will practice skills using MIDAS modeling resources. Teachers in this conference are MIDAS scientists and students working in academia, government, or industry. Financial support will be offered to students and teachers to cover transportation and lodging.
