CDC estimates that each year roughly

48 million Americans get sick,

128,000 are hospitalized,

and 3,000 die of foodborne diseases

This ECHO series is designed to encourage foodborne epidemiologists to take advantage of a variety of data and tools available to them when generating a hypothesis for an outbreak detected through pathogen-based surveillance.

This series is offered in partnership with the Colorado Integrated Food Safety Center of Excellence, Rocky Mountain Public Health Training Center, and ECHO Colorado.
