Participants completing the camp will be able to, identify five public health careers, compare and contrast infectious diseases vs. chronic diseases, demonstrate an understanding of basic epidemiologic terms, calculate basic epidemiologic rates given an outbreak scenario and data, understand the role of laboratory work in public health infectious disease surveillance, and identify three current event issues related to public health.

Epi Intense includes seminars and group work activities that enable participants completing the camp  to describe five major epidemiological study designs, including their strengths and weaknesses, create, administer, and analyze an epidemiological survey-based study, use EpiInfo software to input and analyze survey data, and design and propose public health strategies based on epidemiological data.
