Last Held: Three offerings of this course were held in Winter 2014. No future offerings are planned at this time.


As a public health professional, you strive to keep your community as healthy as possible by advocating practices to prevent the spread of infectious disease. But outbreaks sometimes happen, and when they do, your goal is to stop them as quickly and safely as possible.

Outbreaks vary widely in magnitude and complexity, and diseases can spread through various modes of transmission. Your primary goals in an outbreak investigation are to confirm the outbreak, identify the source of the disease, and implement controls to stop it from spreading.

The New Jersey Association of County and City Health Officials (NJACCHO) invites you to attend this one-day program, which will address critical aspects of effective communicable disease outbreak investigations and control and will help you to conduct outbreak investigations more efficiently and consistently.

Featured Topics:

  • Introduction to the NJACCHO Communicable Disease Outbreak Investigation Manual
  • Responsibilities of Local Health Departments in Outbreaks
  • Key Steps in Effective Outbreak Investigations
