Emory University researchers, in collaboration with Fulton County Board of Health (FCBOH), have found that testing for COVID-19 in long-term care facilities (LTCFs) before cases were known to occur resulted in lower overall COVID-19 cases. The results of the study were recently published in CDC’s MMWR Early Release report.
Supporting practice- and evaluation- focused activities that put Emory’s talented academic community into the service of Georgia’s public health partners during the COVID-19 crisis and into the future.

The Rollins COVID-19 Epidemiology Fellowship Program is a 2-year intensive training program. Fellows will be assigned to 1 of the 18 Georgia health districts or the Georgia Department of Public Health.
This exciting opportunity allows fellows the opportunity to be a part of a Rollins COVID-19 Epidemiology Fellows Network. This will provide networking opportunities to share experiences, challenges, best practices and ideas for integration into health departments and assisting with the COVID-19 response.
