We were excited to host the 2022 IDM Annual Symposium after having to cancel the previous two years due to COVID-19. Although this Symposium was only one day, compared to our previous three-day Symposia, we were happy to be able to meet and discuss important topics towards disease eradication and global health endeavors. Talks and discussions ranged from environmental and genomic surveillance, nutrition, under immunization and vaccine coverage, data collection and analysis, to the new StarSim modeling platform and tools, such as Covasim.
