This half-day session will convene leading epidemiologists, technologists, public health advocates, and government leaders to discuss how to improve and modernize critical elements of any global response – including public health interventions, data systems, surveillance technologies, supply chains, and strategic stockpiles – to blunt the impact of emerging infectious diseases.

Is your kid having trouble sleeping? According to a Stanford Medicine study, children who learned techniques such as deep breathing and yoga slept longer and better, even though the curriculum didn’t instruct them in improving sleep.

Lisa Kim is senior manager of media relations for Stanford Medicine. She has a deep background in journalism and is an Emmy Award-winning journalist who has covered stories on both the national and local levels. Victor Carrión, MD, is the John A. Turner Professor and vice-chair of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Stanford University. He is also director of the Stanford Early Life Stress and Resilience Program.
