COCA News and Announcements
COCA's New Webinar System
COCA is excited to announce that we will be switching COCA Calls to the Adobe Connect webinar platform! Our first call using Adobe Connect will be 2016-2017 Influenza Season Activity and Recommendations for Clinicians, this Thursday, February 16, from 2–3 pm (Eastern Time). You do not need to register for this webinar.
To view the webinar, you will need the latest version of Flash installed on your computer. Remember that if you are unable to access the webinar, the slides will be available for download on the call’s webpage and you may call in to participate.
Although you will now be able to hear the webinar audio through Adobe Connect, you will need to call in using the numbers provided in order to ask the presenters questions over the phone. You will still be able to ask questions through the webinar system by typing questions into the Q&A box that will be available during the webinar.
Mobile users: You can now view the webinar on your mobile devices! Download the app now so you have it before the webinar, or click the Adobe Connect webinar link a few minutes before the COCA Call begins and follow the prompts to download the app. Remember that you can type and submit questions to the presenters through the Adobe Connect app and you will need to dial in to ask questions through the phone lines.
Archived COCA conference calls are available at emergency.cdc.gov/coca/calls/index.asp.
