Overall, thank you for informing me about other diseases that I never took the time to pay attention to. Also, allowing me to think if I was in a situation to decided and manage these predicaments.

This course was interesting but it was very focused on the US, so I wish I had known before signing up that a lot of the information wouldn't be very relevant to the situation in my own country.

I'm a bit disappointed because it focused mainly on US policies and less about the international condition or comparisons in other countries. Overall it is quite easy to understand.

Please ask the presenters to slow down their speech cadence. It is a lot of information and most spoke too quickly which caused them to be unclear

The content as presented was excellent. However, the course should be updated so it reflects current experiences with COVID-19.

Very good introduction to epidemics. Last parts maybe a bit overly focused on US law and practice, could be a bit more global.

The lesson is good but some part is suitable only for Americans. The quiz had some unnecessary memory-based questions.
