Disease risk assessment tool development

Attached is a notice from Richard Jabob-Hoff about a disease risk assessment workshop planned for April, and also a larger collaborators network Richard is setting up.  Note that the workshop will be kept small (20 people) but Richard is nevertheless interested in hearing from anybody interested in attending or being part of the collaborator network.  I'm afraid this has sat in my pile of stuff to do for awhile, hence already passed the date Richard wanted to hear from people by, but I suspect he'll still want to hear from anybody interested.

For those interested in this workshop please note there is an error in the contact e-mail for me which should read richard@cbsgaustralasia.org (not .com).
