After a year off, the "Harvard" continuing education course, "Building Design and Engineering Approaches to Airborne Infection Control" will again be held in Boston at Harvard Medical School, 27 July to 7 Aug, 2015.
This is not a general TB IC course, but one specifically intended to build capacity among architects and engineers, and also physicians, nurses, and public health health administrators who are involved in building renovation and new construction. Although students from the public and private sector are welcome, we especially target those charged with clinics and hospitals for public health departments.
In addition to the lectures and lab demonstrations, participants benefit greatly from the close interaction with other participants and faculty with field experience.
This year the course is being organized by the MASS Design Group, and the link is:
Although limited scholarship help is available, participants are encouraged to seek sponsors, such as local USAID missions, CFAR projects, and other sources.
Please get your applications in early as participation is limited.
Ed Nardell, MD, Course Co-Director.
