Workshop on Infectious Diseases

Campus and community personnel gather to explore infectious disease issues—sharing what they’ve learned and finding additional resources

This was a year that captured everyone’s attention about such major diseases as Ebola. And every year campuses prepare and often have to respond to flu. So on Feb. 12, 2015 campus personnel from all six CRC institutions came together to connect with Wake County health and emergency management personnel and each other about preparing for and responding to infectious diseases. Some 45 people came to Meredith College to share what they’ve already learned and what more they need to learn. Spokespeople from each campus shared their experiences with infectious disease issues ranging from dealing with students traveling abroad to how they communicate to students, faculty,staff and parents when an issue arises.
