I truly appreciate the collaborative effort of CDPHE and the Colorado Public Health Training Center to offer this course to LPHAs. This will inevitably support the state in addressing the 10 winnable battles. The state cannot win them without competent LPHA’s.
Outbreak Investigation: Epi-Ready Course
The Epi-Ready course is an in-person, team-based training for public health professionals involved in foodborne disease outbreak investigations. Coordinated by the National Environmental Health Association (NEHA) and funded by CDC, it is a two day, face-to-face training. Epi-Ready focuses on how to efficiently and effectively respond to a foodborne disease outbreak through a "team-based” approach, bringing together the disciplines involved in the investigation of these outbreaks (i.e., environmental health specialists/sanitarian, epidemiologists, laboratorians, and public health nurses).
