Supercourse Newsletter, June 1st
We are looking forward to the Congress of Epidemiology 2001 at the
Weston Hotel <http://www.epi2001.org/> in Toronto. We hope that many
of you will be able to attend.
New formula, 70% larger and for free
We decided to provide CDs of the supercourse to many of the partici-
pants at the College of Epidemiology meeting. If you come, you might
want to pick up a new CD as Eun Ryoung Sa has done a wonderful job in
updating the new and improved supercourse CD. We have all the CDC
lectures in this version, with a total number of lectures of 326. We
wish we could provide the CDs to everyone, but the Congress could not
provide support. Therefore we will try to distribute the lectures as
fairly as we can.
We will have the CDs available at the registration desk, on a first
come-first serve. The two conditions for obtaining this material are
that you do not sell the lectures and that you make a copy of the
lectures for yourself, and then distribute copies to your students,
faculty, friends and family. If you cannot distribute the material,
then please wait for the CDs for another time as we want to reach and
help as many people in epidemiology as we can and we do not have a
lot of money for making CDs.
We will have a meeting/party on Friday night, June 15 in the Weston
from 7:30-9:00. We will give a short presentation to overview where
we are. We very much want to obtain feedback from all of you. A pri-
mary concern we have now is how to change the "culture" of epidemiol-
ogy and global health teaching. We have a wonderful set of lectures
provided by you, the global leaders of the world. How can we bring
these into the classroom? We would love suggestions as to how move
the lectures into the classroom.
After the short meeting, we will have the "food fest". This is a
global sharing of food. Already we have been promised Cape Cod potato
chips. In addition, there will be "Canadian Dry ginger ale", and for
the more adventuresome, "Canadian Club. The supercourse faculty has
been wonderful in sharing lectures. It would be great if we also
shared our food and drink as well as we do this for global health,
our field and friendship.
We would also like if you could bring a CD from your area as well.
Most certainly Gordon Lightfoot will be represented. We would love
music from your area/religion/ethnic group so we can understand each
other a little better.
We look forward to seeing you in Toronto.
You can, of course come without bringing any food, we want to meet
you. There always is much food and drink to go around.
