VPD Dissemination and Outreach Possible Liaisons

Viral Pandemic Working Group, Dissemination and Outreach Subgroup: Possible Liaisons

This is a rough  and preliminary list meant to collect possible organizations, including governmental, educational, industrial, medical and professional, that the Viral Pandemics groups might try to setup a formal liaison with. Suggestions are welcome and can be sent to jsluka@iu.edu.
