So you made an outbreak model and you want to share your findings with the world. Now what?
I had the pleasure of working with dozens of colleagues to develop consensus recommendations for reporting epidemic forecasting and prediction research
Recommended reporting items for epidemic forecasting and prediction research: The EPIFORGE 2020 guidelines
Simon Pollett and co-workers describe EPIFORGE, a guideline for reporting research on epidemic forecasting.

Really pleased to have such an amazing speaker for CMMID’s annual lecture this year. I am sure Dr Van Kerkhove will have fascinating insights on the pandemic and beyond.
Want the latest on the global #COVID19 situation, insights from @WHO & possible paths of the pandemic?🌍
Well nobody better to hear from than COVID Technical Lead at WHO & LSHTM alum @mvankerkhove!
Can't wait for @cmmid_lshtm's Annual Lecture tomorrow 👉 http://bit.ly/3D5tNOA
We have launched an updated visualization of short-term predictions from the US #COVID19 Forecast Hub. So much data to look at here: dozens of models forecasting every week new cases, hospitalizations and deaths at the state/national level in the US.
The virtual #StettenLecture is this Wednesday! Join us live at 3 p.m. ET to hear Dr. Trevor Bedford, @FredHutch, talk about the mutation patterns and transmission of SARS-CoV-2 variants. https://go.usa.gov/xMKBd. @trvrb
Was really glad to get to push some ideas about where to go next with our approaches to epi modeling in this article by @sioroberts along with @mlipsitch @StatModeling @SDGuikema
Reimagining our pandemic problems with the mindset of an engineer
Grappling with all the uncertainty, the epidemiologist’s role during the pandemic proved confusingly complex. A more pragmatic, problem-solving ...
Come join us at UGA! We’re hiring 8 faculty in Ecology, Engineering, Epidemiology, & Statistics for a cluster hire in AI, Data Science, & Infectious Disease Dynamics. For full details, see: https://www.ceid.uga.edu/idd/
Scientists like Dr. Trevor Bedford @fredhutch use computational tools to gain critical insight into the mutations of the virus that causes #COVID19. Learn more about his work at the 2021 #StettenLecture on Oct. 20, 3-4 p.m. ET. https://go.usa.gov/xMKBd @trvrb
What is the COVID-19 forecast for this winter? @USAToday's @kweintraub interviewed experts including @laurenmeyers @TexasScience who says we need to stay vigilant. via @YahooNews
Will the US face another bad COVID-19 winter? Cases are falling, but the virus isn't done with us, experts say
COVID-19 cases are falling again in the USA. Whether they will rise again depends on how Americans behave and what the unpredictable virus does next.
