Advisory Groups and Partners

As Oregon continues to implement an Environmental Public Health Tracking (EPHT) network within the state, an advisory group helps guide and support Oregon Tracking.  The Oregon Tracking Advisory Group (OTAG) includes data owners, epidemiologists, informatics/information technology specialists, environmental professionals, academic partners, communications specialists, laboratorians, and public health program officials and is directed by its 2008 Charter

OTAG supports network data content, network architecture, partnership building, and evaluation activities. The group helps to identify common needs, test methods, promote resource and information sharing, provide topic area consultation on standards, evaluate methods for display of data, and support the development of the National Network and public health actions. 

OTAG meets biannually. If you are interested in participating, please contact Oregon Tracking. For past meeting notes, browse the documents below.
