  • Recognizing an Outbreak
  • Study Design

The I is for Investigation training series was developed through the support of the CDC-funded UNC Preparedness and Emergency Response Learning Center (UNC PERLC) and serves as a companion to the E is for Epidemiology training series. A revised version of the training workbook for use in facilitated face-to-face trainings is coming soon. Request a print copy by emailing cphp@unc.edu
