Training Overview

This webinar was recorded live on May 13, 2020.

In this presentation, we will discuss how models predict viral spread including the spread of COVID-19 as well as the impact it has on the community. We will review three modeling strategies used to model viral spread and how assumptions in models impact decisions made from various model outputs. We will also explore how models are used in public health policy to control infectious disease spread. 

The course contains two modules: a content module and a resources and evaluation module. After accessing both modules, learners will earn a certificate of completion. When the certificate is available, learners will see a Certificate button on their dashboard.

This recording is approximately 90 minutes. There are no prerequisites. Participants will need a broadband internet connection (Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox are preferred browsers) and computer speakers. For technical support, please contact emoryphtc@emory.edu.
