OSHR 3022 - History of Vector-borne Disease Prevention & Control along the Colorado Front Range PERK SERIES

  • Noncredit

This course is offered through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Colorado State University. You must be a member of Osher to enroll in this course.

How did the Center for Disease Control laboratory come to be located in Fort Collins (and why did it move from Greeley)? What are the major vector-borne diseases that we need to be concerned about, and what are state and local agencies doing to prevent outbreaks of these pathogens? What role has CSU played in these efforts and how has the university benefitted?

This talk is jointly sponsored by CSU’s Society of Senior Scholars and CSU’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute.

Noncredit courses do not produce academic credit nor appear on a Colorado State University academic transcript.
