The Infectious Diseases Institute (IDI) launched the Infectious Diseases Student Community of Practice and Engagement (ID SCOPE) in partnership with the Battelle Center for Science, Engineering, and Public Policy, a center within the Glenn College. The ID SCOPE is open to all students, regardless of major or rank as they are trying to engage students from all disciplines given the broad nature of the infectious disease grand challenge/wicked problem. The ID SCOPE features weekly discussion and engagement sessions (Tuesdays, 6pm-7pm) on current infectious disease topics, linking various disciplines, public policy, human behavior and legal components. It also provides research opportunities as well as on-going student mentoring in “soft skill” development. See the attachment for more infomation.
