ScienceDaily - October 12, 2008
The 1918 flu pandemic killed more than 40 million people worldwide and affected persons of all age groups. While it is difficult to predict when the next influenza pandemic will occur or how severe it will be, researchers at the Georgia Tech have developed models to help organizations like the American Red Cross and Georgia Department of Education prepare emergency response plans. "The models are flexible so that multiple scenarios can be investigated to see which options meet a certain goal," said Pinar Keskinocak, an associate professor in GEORGIA TECH'S H. Milton Stewart School of ISyE.
