Global Communicable Diseases in Humans: Detection, Monitoring and Control
Global Communicable Diseases in Humans: Detection, Monitoring and Control is a field course that examines practices used by local Wisconsin laboratories and government agencies. Students learn how international, national, state and local agencies function and work together to detect, monitor and control communicable disease. Students review and discuss current "outbreaks" of specific pathogens (bacterial, viral, parasitic or fungal) and how information summaries are communicated from hospitals, laboratories and government agencies to the public via a global/national/local network. This course was developed with the financial and curricular support from the MIU initiative in global health education.
