Join Us at the Norovirus Nexus Conference in New Mexico

published on 29 February 2024

We are excited to announce that we have been invited to present a one-hour session on the role of crowdsourcing in Norovirus detection at the upcoming Norovirus Nexus: Charting a Course Through Prevention, Outbreak, and Mitigation conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico, with the exact date soon to be determined.


Organized by the City of Albuquerque Environmental Health Department's Public Health Division, this conference will include participants spanning senior care, medical, hospitality, childcare, school facilities, regulatory sectors, and more. The division, responsible for overseeing the health of over 500,000 residents, anticipates over 250 participants at this year's event. The conference's objective is to highlight key Norovirus topics: prevention, response, and containment, benefiting locals and professionals from various sectors.

Our presentation will focus specifically on the innovative use of crowdsourcing to address Norovirus detection and prevention. We will explore how this approach aids health departments in their food safety efforts, demonstrate its effectiveness in early outbreak detection through case studies, and compare crowdsourced data with official statistics. 

We are excited to be a part of this educational and informative event. We believe that our insights will contribute to Albuquerque's ongoing efforts to combat and educate their people on Norovirus effectively. We encourage all interested individuals to join us for this free and educational session!
