In this position I investigated diseases, and this involved the collection and analysis of health data through field research, observation, and questionnaires. I also had to educate the community on the different diseases affecting them.
During outbreaks, I would have to apply my knowledge of how and why communicable diseases spread so I could make recommendations on containment and treatment. I also was responsible for locating and counseling people exposed to, infected with, or having a positive test for communicable diseases. I had to create reports for the state and the CDC.
