COVID-19 has greatly impacted our lives in ways that we would have never imagined. In this course, we will cover the science of public health with a focus on epidemiology—specifically, how diseases like COVID-19 spread in populations. You will learn all about epidemics, diseases, biostatistics, and apply this knowledge to the COVID-19 pandemic. This course will not only teach theory, but there will be interactive workshops where you can step into the shoes of a public health professional! You’ll also learn about how to stay safe during COVID-19, how to crush the Science Olympiad Disease Detectives event, and start your own COVID-19 public health initiative.

To enroll in this course, it is highly recommended that you have a copy of the book  Epidemiology Unmasked: An Introduction to Epidemiology in Public Health  by Stephanie Wang. This book will serve as the backbone for the course and it will be used as the official textbook. All proceeds will be donated to help COVID-19 health workers, so you’re doing a great deed!
