Haywood Community College Emerging Infectious Diseases Workshop

Haywood Community College Emerging Infectious Diseases Workshop

When: Thursday, April 18, 2019 - 8:00am to 3:30pm
Where: Haywood Community College

Look no further than 24 hour news coverage, box office movie sensations, and popular zombie lore for proof - infectious diseases fascinate us. In this workshop you will participate in several hands-on activities, gain an understanding of the types of tests used to detect and identify diseases, and become familiar with current biotechnology methods and equipment. Return to the classroom prepared to tell your students how some NC companies are reducing the impact of emerging infectious diseases. Additionally, you’ll be equipped to guide them toward non-traditional life science careers, especially through programs available at their local community college.

All lesson plans will be provided.

Substitute reimbusement will be provided for the first 15 registrants that register with that ticket type.
