Career Presentation

Can you develop a novel analytic approach that uses the CMU/UMD COVID-19 Symptom Survey data to enable earlier detection and improved situational awareness of the outbreak by public health authorities and the general public?  Phase I submissions are due by 29 September 29 2020 11:59 PM ET.

Following the launch of the COVID-19 Symptom Data Challenge on 1 September 2020, we are excited to host a dedicated webinar providing further insights into the Challenge directly from key leaders representing our partner organizations at Facebook Data for Good, the Delphi Group at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), the Joint Program on Survey Methodology at the University of Maryland (UMD), the Duke-Margolis Center for Health Policy, and Resolve to Save Lives, an initiative of Vital Strategies.

If you are applying to the Challenge or would like to hear more about experts’ responses to COVID-19 and the importance of data during the pandemic, you do not want to miss this conversation!

We will be discussing the following:

  • Shortcomings of the existing tools for COVID-19 surveillance in the US
  • The case for better situational awareness of COVID activity
  • Overview of Symptom Data survey methodology
  • Preliminary analyses relating symptom trends to COVID intensity
  • Goals and operation of the Symptom Data Challenge
