9:30 a.m.

PHDL Overview and Agent-based Modeling
Mark Roberts

10:30 a.m.

Tea Break

11:00 a.m.

FRED Overview
Mark Roberts

11:30 p.m.

Using FRED on the Web
Participants will register on the FRED website and learn how to set up projects; define parameter settings for FRED simulations; submit jobs to the FRED server; and visualize and download results. Examples will use a standard influenza model.
David Galloway

1:00 p.m.

Lunch

2:00 p.m.

Key Concepts in FRED Modeling
Participants will learn how to define an infectious disease model in FRED, including synthetic populations, health conditions and their natural histories, disease transmission modes, importing cases into the population, and defining public health resources such as vaccines.
Mary Krauland

3:30 p.m.

Posters and Tea Break

4:30 p.m.

FRED Case Studies
Participants will review multiple applications of using FRED, including H1N1 pandemic influenza, effectiveness of public health intervention such as school closure and vaccine distribution, analysis of paid sick leave policy, mitigation of dengue in Colombia, measles and the effects of vaccine coverage, and examples of non-infectious disease models such as asthma and opioid use.
Mary Krauland

5:30 p.m.

Break

7:30 p.m.

Workshop Dinner at ICMR Lawn

 

 

DAY 2:   Tuesday, March 6, 2018

9:30 a.m.

FRED Hands-on Session 1: Exploring Model Variations
Participants will gain experience with FRED by modifying existing FRED models to analyze the effects of changes in the transmissibility of influenza and the effects of variations in vaccine coverage and timing. Additional aspects of the FRED plotting and visualization system will be explored.
Robert Frankeny, David Galloway, and Mary Krauland

10:30 a.m.

Tea Break

11:00 a.m.

FRED Hands-on Session 2: Advanced Modeling Methods
Participants will explore advanced features of FRED modeling, including both acute and chronic health condition models, methods for assigning risks to subpopulations, and methods for tracking health dynamics within the population.
Robert Frankeny, David Galloway, and Mary Krauland
