Brown School launches pandemic preparedness and response initiative

The Brown School has launched a “Foundations of Pandemic Preparedness & Response” program. The five-part, 20-hour program provides a self-paced, online tool kit to help public health and social service professionals respond, mitigate and prevent infectious disease outbreaks, focusing on the COVID-19 pandemic.

The course is a foundational experience designed to build basic understanding and skills in:

  • Epidemiology
  • Surveillance and response
  • Communications
  • Mitigation and recovery
  • Public health and social policy

The course was developed in consultation with practitioners in the field and Brown School experts in public health, social work and social policy.
