AMI will hold a one-day workshop about epidemiological investigations January 15, 2002, at the Hyatt Regency in Atlanta, GA.
The course, titled "Preparing Your Company for an Investigation: What the Industry Needs to Know About Epidemiology," will be taught by epidemiologists, scientists and legal and public affairs experts who have been involved in these investigations. Participants will learn what to expect during an epidemiological investigation, how a company can help expedite it to ensure a smooth and rapid investigation and how the results will be used. Workshop leaders will give real world examples and provide insight into the latest scientific tools available.
The workshop will feature a review of foodborne illness with Dr. Robert Tauxe, chief of Foodborne and Diarrheal Diseases Branch at the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, and a step-by-step interactive experience lead by a teaching team comprised of AMI staff, industry officials and university professors. Participants also will work on case studies in small groups and face questioning from a mock investigation team.
