- Measles Rises Again: The Science and Policy of a Preventable Outbreak - The Bloomberg School brought together world experts on measles, vaccine safety and vaccine acceptance for a symposium to discuss the re-emergence of the virus and how to reverse the outbreak. The webcast from the symposium can be viewed on the website.
- Cancer Cluster Investigations: A Case Study and Resources - The investigation of a potential cancer cluster can be a difficult, even traumatic experience for a community. The videos on this website document the challenges involved in an investigation and serve as a resource for others involved in potential cancer cluster investigations.
