UC 4-H Disease Detectives: Operation Outbreak

Project Overview

The Junior Disease Detectives: Operation Outbreak Graphic Novel | CDC

Intrigued by the microscopic viruses who have spread across our planet? Want to test your investigative skills and help 4-H adapt to this pandemic? Interested in epidemiology (how we can track and prevent the spread of germs and diseases)? Join us for a statewide virtual Disease Detectives: Operation Outbreak project! Anyone interested in medicine, health, veterinary sciences, communications, or marketing should join.  

The 4-H Disease Detectives Project will help you learn about disease outbreaks, virus transmissions, public health investigations and how protective actions like hand washing, wearing masks, vaccinations, and herd immunity help manage negative public health outcomes. This project is designed for 4-H members that are at least 12 years old. The project will meet online twice a week from June 16th - July 13th. Meetings will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Prior registration is required and is now closed.
