Here's a chance to learn for free: This free Teach-Out is for anyone who has been curious about how we identify and measure outbreaks like the COVID-19 epidemic and wants to understand the epidemiology of these infections.
The COVID-19 epidemic has made many people want to understand the science behind pressing questions like: "How many people have been infected?" "How do we measure who is infected?" "How infectious is the virus?" "What can we do?" Epidemiology has the tools to tell us how to collect and analyze the right data to answer these questions. In addition to a basic understanding of these essential tools, this Teach-Out provides a way for you to learn and connect with one another while continuing to practice the social distancing measures that will help keep us safe. We also hope to provide you with some tangible calls to action that will help you affect positive change for yourself, your community, and our society.
Jeannette Pickering Rankin was the first woman to hold federal office in the United States. She was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives from Montana in 1916, and again in 1940. She remains the only woman elected to Congress by Montana. In 1917 she joined a handful of representatives who voted against entry into World War I asserting, despite harsh criticism and certain damage to her career, that “the first time the first woman had a chance to say no against war she should say it.”
In order to create a community where we all treat each other with civility and respect, each of us affirm that we will:
Value honesty and good will while striving to solve problems
Attempt genuinely to understand the point of view of others.
Model civil behavior and tone, online as well as in public, by:
*Being kind, while maintaining the right to vigorously disagree
*Acting respectfully toward others, including opponents
*Listening to those who disagree with us, as well as supporters.
*Making only accurate statements when defending a position.
*Refraining from characterizing adversaries as evil.
4) Challenge disrespectful behavior, courteously
5) Encourage any person or organization working on our behalf to meet these same standards for civil discourse
6) Renew our efforts, if we fail, and forgive others, if they fail.
I am the best candidate for HD25 because I will put people over politics. My experience as a non-partisan advocate for Montana’s postal patrons has taught me to find policy solutions with legislators that I don’t always agree with. I am a good listener and can be an honest broker for the interests of everyone in the district.
