Description

Outbreak investigation is one of the primary and most critical activities in epidemiology. Infectious disease outbreaks always require intense, rapid on-site response and gain front page headlines. Bacterial or viral outbreaks occur quickly, and students and professionals should know how to react. This title uses Field Epidemiology - the application of epidemiology methods for unexpected health problems requiring fast, on-site investigation for timely intervention.
