    This is one agency that seems to "get it":

    I wrote the article above, in my role as a contributing writer for the Study Circles Resource Center. It describes how the CDC and SCRC put together several forums for people to discuss pandemic flu preparation and priorities - essentially a forerunner to what's happening now.

    It's very cool to see how several Kossacks are working this interface between public policy and technology! DemFromCT, you are so wise to post news of the flu blog here and bring it to wider attention.

      and Roger Bernier is one of my public health heroes for doing this. Thank you for citing it.

      One of the great projects that CDC produced was the recent nonpharmaceutical Intervention document, with feedback from the public (through keystone and ASTHO).

      We had public input from several fluwikians as part of the process, and several wikians are also Kossacks!

      This is policy that filters down to state and local levels. all citizens need to stay informed, so valuable input can be given.
