Local Modeling for Hospital Preparedness

EERG member Justin Ingels assisted HPAM faculty member Grace Bagwell-Adams with two major efforts aimed at informing local leaders on the potential impacts of COVID-19.

First, utilizing data from the Athens Wellbeing Project and other information related to hospital supply, a presentation was developed and presented to a special session of the Athens-Clarke County Mayor and Commission on March 19, 2020. Video of the presentation is available here:

Second, utilizing an infectious disease model developed by UGA colleagues, a report for the local hospital system was developed and can be found here.
