Congratulations to Rose Donna of Wonderland and Looking Glass Lounge, originally uploaded by Prince of Petworth.

While Wonderland and Looking Glass Lounge are great accomplishments in their own right, did you know that Rose has also been busy saving the world?  I mentioned in a previous post that Rose runs an international public health non profit group called Data Dyne. I thought it was unbelievably cool that she has recently won the prestigious Stockholm Challenge event for her EpiSurveyor Project.

A brief description: “The EpiSurveyor project brings high quality electronic data collection and analysis within reach of developing country public health workers by creating free, easy-to-use open-source software for data collection and analysis on mobile devices*, thus extending the benefits of modern information technology to health programs and locations that could never afford it before, and reducing reliance on expensive foreign consultants.”

Congratulations Rose!

  • Congrats! I know many people on this blog might not be experts in epidemiology, but this will serve as a great tool for data collection in many countries that otherwise would not have been able to do so.

    Collecting good data is the first, necessary step in making good public health decisions about how to allocate scarce resources to have the most impact possible.

    How does Rose manage to do everything she does?

  • Wow! That makes me feel…. lazy.
