Recent examples include efforts to prepare for avian influenza, SARS, H1N1, MERS-CoV, and Ebola. The speakers will review the sentinel monitoring function of the college health service and “lessons learned” during planning/response efforts at their universities, focusing on approaches likely to be helpful at both institutions with and without an academic medical center.
