Local Health Departments and Tribal Health Centers can choose to use a portion of their ELC (Epidemiology and Laboratory Capacity for Prevention and Control of Emerging Infectious Diseases) allotments to host one or more Response Corps members. Response Corps members will be full time UW employees throughout the period of deployment (~18-22 months). They will receive onboarding, training, and ongoing mentorship from UW throughout the program, but will be based at local health departments or tribal health centers (as soon as COVID-19 guidelines allow).
UW PHI held two info sessions back in October 2020 about the Response Corps Program. Slides shared during these sessions can be found here: COVID-19 Info Sessions slides.
