This intensive half-day course will train students in interview techniques used in foodborne disease outbreak investigations. Students who complete the course will be added to a “Rapid Responder” list and could be invited to assist in outbreak investigations coordinated by the CDPHE and possibly other local public health agencies. ColoradoSPH AMC students in the beginning or middle of their program are encouraged to attend. An additional training for CSU students will be offered in spring 2020.
This course is hosted by the Colorado Integrated Food Safety Center of Excellence.
