The class modules and discussion with other participants made me more aware of how my actions and personal biases can get in the way of creating a inclusive environment. I am also more sensitive to the way others behave (towards me or other people) and can see how their own personal biases may lead the interaction to happen in that manner. Prior to the course, I thought if we have diversity, then it is all good. But now after the course, I realize that having diversity is good, but not good enough if we don't have inclusion in the equation. That is a big eye opener for me.
Three Steps and a Hop: A Foodborne Illness Outbreak Investigation Case Study (Online)
This version of the case study based on a local foodborne illness outbreak at a polka dance festival offers an online alternative to the paper based format. The interactive, online version is designed to be taken by public health students or new foodborne illness outbreak investigations and can be completed individually. For optimal use, participants should have a basic knowledge of epidemiologic concepts and methods.
