Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine has launched Tulane Outbreak Daily, a curated daily wrap-up of the timeliest and most relevant news and data focused on emerging infectious diseases like COVID-19. 

The newsletter is curated and produced by Claudinne Miller, an intelligence analyst who has for years produced reports to top-level U.S. government leadership and international public health, academic and government leaders about past outbreaks like H5N1, H1N1 and Ebola. 

Miller has an extensive background as a knowledge manager and senior intelligence analyst with experience in the U.S. intelligence community and the U.S. Department of Defense as well as at the state government level.

“I am delighted that we have been able to bring such a valuable resource to our school,” said Dean Thomas LaVeist. “For many years Claudinne Miller has provided this service for the U.S. intelligence community, our international allies and other experts around the world. Now as a part of our school we can make this resource available to an even larger network of public health leaders and the media. Another example of how the Tulane School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine is on the front line for global health.”

Tulane Outbreak Daily will be disseminated Monday through Friday and will provide a carefully curated list of featured headlines, surveillance reporting and abstracts of relevant peer-reviewed research designed to update readers on the most important news related to COVID-19 and other emerging infectious diseases and public health topics.

“I’m thrilled to be a part of the Tulane School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine. I look forward to delivering a timely and relevant collection of the most pressing news and information to public health professionals, U.S. government leadership, our foreign partners in public health and members of the informed public,” Miller said.
