2015 course on Building Design and Engineering Approaches to Airborne Infection Control

By David Mistretta | 01 Apr, 2015

We are pleased to announce that after a year off, the continuing education course, "Building Design and Engineering Approaches to Airborne Infection Control" will again be held in Boston at the Harvard Medical School, 27 July to 7 Aug, 2015.

This two-week (27 July 2015 – 7 August 2015), multidisciplinary course offered by Harvard School of Public Health, Department of Environmental Engineering; Brigham & Women’s Hospital, Division of Global Health Equity; The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; MASS Design Group; and Partners In Health provides a unique opportunity to build global engineering capacity to help control airborne infections by bringing together a body of technical expertise common to the control of human airborne infections. The curriculum will include didactic lectures, laboratory sessions, and interactive workshops focusing on solutions that are feasible and effective for both resource-rich and resource-limited settings. The strategies covered will be applicable to preventing transmission in high-risk spaces including clinics, hospitals, laboratories, and congregate living settings. Experienced faculty from Harvard, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Institutes of Health, and other domestic and international experts will lead the course.
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.
