Herrmann's clinic model research lauded by NACCHO

Associate Professor Jeffrey Herrmann's (ME/ISR) Montgomery County, Md. research on clinic models has been highlighted in a newsletter article at the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) website.

Last June, Dr. Herrmann and seven Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) students assisted in a mass vaccination drill in Montgomery County, Md. The researchers were interested in finding ways to lessen the processing time for persons waiting to be vaccinated. They created a simulation model that evaluated several possible suggestions to improve the clinic's functionality.

This April, Dr. Herrmann and his students evaluated another mass vaccination clinic as part of TOPOFF 3, the world's largest-ever terrorism response drill.
