CDC Seeking faculty to Assist with Course Focusing on Disaster Epidemiology

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Center for Environmental Health (NCEH) is developing a graduate-level, semester-long applied public health course focusing on disaster epidemiology. The CDC is working with partners from state and local health departments, education, and nongovernmental organizations in the development of this curriculum. The framework for the curriculum will be based on the CDC and Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists’ (CSTE) recent American Journal of Public Health publication, “The Role of Applied Epidemiology Methods in the Disaster Management Cycle.” CDC is recruiting any interested ASPPH faculty members who would like to be involved in the development of this curriculum. Varying levels of assistance, from work group members to reviewers, are needed throughout the three-year project. Please contact Ms. Amy Schnall at GHU5@cdc.gov or 770.488.3422 if you would like to be involved or have any questions regarding this project.
