INFORMS Chapter Seminar :: OR Tools in Public Health
Dr. Michael L. Washington earned his B.S. in Industrial and Systems Engineering
from the University of Florida, and his M.S. and Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering
from the University of South Florida. He currently works in the National Immunization
Program at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, specializing
in applying OR techniques to public health issues. Dr. Washington has served
as a consultant for several foreign governments, and National Engineering Week
selected him as one of the top 16 young engineers in the nation in 2003. He was
nominated for a Service to America Medal for his Homeland Security efforts in
creating a mass smallpox vaccinations computer model to help local officials
prepare for a bio-terrorist attack.
A reception will precede the meeting at 5:30. The meeting is open to all interested
parties, and is free of charge. Refreshments will be served, and there will
also be time to network with fellow OR professionals in the Atlanta community.
The meeting will be in the Executive Classroom (Room 228) of the ISyE Main
Entrance Bldg. (755 Ferst Drive, formerly the Dupree School of Management Building
- same location as our previous meetings this year.) There is plenty of free
parking next to the building after 5:00 PM.
