Dear SPARK and SPECTRUM consortia
We are very excited that SPARK has produced a new video Explainer on “What are infectious disease models?”. It is produced for those unfamiliar with this type of modelling and aimed at public servants responsible for responding to public health outbreaks and pandemics.
The video can be found along with recommended introductory reading on the SPARK website at https://www.spark.edu.au/introductory_resources.html
We hope you will find this video useful in dealing with students and stakeholders who wish to know more about mathematical modelling in infectious diseases, including those who are interested in a career involving modelling.
Please share this video with your colleagues and networks, either in presentations, websites, emails or your social media channels.
A suggestion of text to accompany social media posts is:
