Professor of Epidemiology Issac Chun Hai Fung, Ph.D., has been published in the Dec. 20-27, 2014 edition, Volume 384 of The Lancet, a prestigious British medical journal.

Fung, a professor of the Jiann-Ping Hsu College of Public Health, was published as a result of his 250-word collaborative correspondence title “Ebola and the Social Media.” The correspondence shows how worldwide traffic on Twitter and Google about Ebola increased as news spread about the cases in the U.S. and how they compare with influenza-related searches and tweets.

Fung credits his collaborators and his students for the success of the project. His students have been involved in a variety of social media research.
