Public health epidemiologists currently face the threat of novel diseases, prepare for emergency responses, and investigate disease outbreaks. The Florida Department of Health, Bureau of Epidemiology, contracted with CIMES to assist them in developing an innovative statewide conference targeting epidemiology competencies.
CIMES developed a face-to-face workshop and Web-based training for the Florida Department of Health’s Environmental Public Health Tracking website.
The workshop was developed to introduce the new Tracking website to County Health Department (CHD) staff and other interested parties engaged in activities related to environmental health monitoring.
The Central Accounting Services Unit (CAS) at the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) is responsible for verifying the Local Health Departments’ (LHDs’) expenditures, confirming that the LHD has appropriately calculated the Indirect Cost Rate (ICR), and issuing official correspondence documenting the approved ICR.
