Community Groups are ongoing groups of members organized around a broad area of common interest, i.e. the R Group for Biosurveillance. Community Groups are less structured. For example, some might include a monthly call with planned content and open discussion that will include practice presentations and updates from related workgroups, while another might simply utilize the forums to facilitate discussion among group members (i.e. ESSENCE User Group).

The Award Sub-Committee (AC) convenes once a year to review articles identified by the Literature Review Sub-Committee (LRS) as award-potential based on specified judging criteria. The AC then narrows down the finalists per category for the Annual Awards for Outstanding Research Articles in Biosurveillance: Impact on the Field of Biosurveillance and Scientific Achievement. The AC also reviews submissions for the Annual Award for Outstanding Student or Post-Degree Abstract.

For syndromic surveillance, the inclusion of data from urgent care centers can result in improvements in population representativeness, statistical power, breadth of syndromes, and preparation for healthcare reform. It is the goal of this sub-committee to provide evidence of the benefits of including urgent care data in syndromic surveillance to healthcare partners, and to be an urgent care onboarding resource to jurisdictions performing syndromic surveillance.

ISDS started the One Health Surveillance (OHS) Community of Practice to engage its members in the advancement of this important and topical field. We define OHS as the "collaborative, on-going, systematic collection and analysis of data from multiple domains to detect health related events and produce information which leads to actions aimed at attaining optimal health for people, animals, and the environment."

The R Group is a community of R-enthusiasts and newcomers to share knowledge, techniques, code, and best practices relating to the R programming language. We host monthly webinars that range from introductory to advanced levels of programming. We also have a list-serv where people can share code and problems/bugs they're encountering.
