Criminal-Epidemiological Investigation Course - October 4, 2018

The Problem

With rapid scientific advances in capability, knowledge and accessibility, there are also increased opportunities for intentional misuse of biological material for nefarious purposes. An intentional release of a pathogen may initially be difficult to discern from a natural outbreak, resulting in separate law enforcement and public health investigations.

The Solution

By working together, public health and law enforcement can achieve their separate, but often overlapping, objectives of determining if the outbreak is intentional or natural, and protecting public health and safety. This one-day course on October 4, 2018 in Wichita, Kan. brings together the expertise of both of these disciplines to share knowledge and increase interoperability.

Pre-registration in Kansas TRAIN is required by September 28, 2018 (Course #1079086).
