September 29, 2021 – Mayor de Blasio unveiled two new health care initiatives Wednesday that are aimed at continuing New York City’s battle with COVID, preparing for future pandemics and addressing long-term health problems among disadvantaged New Yorkers. […] The institute will focus on developing ways to better collect epidemiological data in real time, scaling up technological solutions to health emergencies and improving pandemic preparedness. It will be housed and operated by Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health in partnership with the City University of New York’s Graduate School of Public Health & Health Policy. Columbia won the role after responding to a request for proposals from the city in April.
