UC 4-H Disease Detectives: Operation Outbreak
Intrigued by the microscopic viruses who have spread across our planet? Want to test your investigative skills and help others adapt to this pandemic? Interested in epidemiology (how we can track and prevent the spread of germs and diseases)? Join us for a 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 youth that are at least 12 years old. The project will meet on-line.
If you are interested in leading or participating in this project, contact your local 4-H Community Education Specialist at your UC Cooperative Extension office.
