October 20 – COVID-19 Wastewater Surveillance -- DoD Applications

Date: Tuesday, October 20, 2020 | 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. EDT

Location: Virtual via GoToWebinar (Login information will be sent to you separately)

Webinar Description:

Wastewater surveillance is an innovative technique to monitor a range of population health measures, from drug use to polio virus to chronic disease prevalence.

The latest application is to sample and test wastewater for the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19.  Since wastewater is an aggregated, population-level data stream, it provides a cost-effective way to determine viral loads in the entire community connected to the sewer system, and in a manner that protects privacy.

This webinar is designed to educate you on the potential applications of this technique to DoD military bases and installations and also other applications such as monitoring wastewater from ships.

Learning objectives:

  • Overview of what is wastewater surveillance and how can it be an effective indication of community health
  • How can this technique be used for COIVD-19 surveillance,
  • Applications to the DoD, for COVID-19 and other uses,
  • Overview of the sample collection and analysis for COVID-19.

Speakers:

  • Moderator: Jane Huber, Eurofins
  • Aparna Keshaviah, Mathematica
  • Farbod Nekouei, Eurofins QC
  • DoD or health agency speaker - TBD

   Facilities Management Workshop


“The mix of being able to get some continuing education, interact with other government folks and the private sector, and do so in formal, open and social settings: I know of very few (maybe no) other venues where you can get cross discipline interactions across the private and public sector in a variety of settings.
No one else does this.”

–Lawrence Schorr, 787th Civil Engineer Squadron, Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, N.J.
