Outbreak Investigation & Response

Take a step into the world of an outbreak investigator! Learn how disease outbreaks – such as Ebola, food-borne illnesses, and pandemic flu – start, spread, and are detected and investigated.  You will explore the social and environmental factors that influence outbreaks, the agencies and systems in place to manage outbreak response, and the role of communications, law, and government.  This course uses a combination of lectures, case studies, discussions, and popular media.
