Join the Bio-Defense Network Contact Tracing Team! Become part of the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Members of the Bio-Defense Network team of contact tracers will interview patients who have tested positive for the disease, encourage them to self-isolate, seek to learn how they became infected, and identify those they may have themselves inadvertently infected. Testing and contact tracing are the two legs of the ladder of recovery from this disease, and our team members will play a role in ending the pandemic. You will gain critical experience that will serve you for a lifetime, and make a difference.
Together we can fight COVID-19!
