Wayne State University's Center for Emerging and Infectious Diseases and the University of Michigan's Public Health Prepared were created in the last year in response to the needs made evident by COVID-19. The Preparedness Roundtable series aims to provide a space for cross-sector education and engagement for those in public health, healthcare, and other related fields in order to build capacity and foster greater collaboration among those working in emergency preparedness.
This four-part quarterly series will focus on a range of issues concerning the role of public health in responding to infectious disease outbreaks and disasters. Topics such as disasters and climate change, public health disparities, and emerging and seasonal disease threats will be covered. The third session will focus on infection control related to Candida auris. This training is centered on State SMEs and Infection Disease Physicians providing education to local public health and healthcare practitioners to equip them with skills needed for future cases.
