Fifty teachers attended the Saturday morning Detectives in
the Classroom Professional Development Workshop held in Hong Kong on June 5, 2004. Perhaps they were drawn by their interest in the role that epidemiology might play in controlling the SARS and avian influenza epidemics. As a result of the workshop, we concluded that Detectives would "travel" very well to Hong Kong.

On the afternoon of the June 5th, we participated in a second event, a seminar for
Hong Kong high school students, entitled "The Role of Health Professionals in Disease Control
and Prevention." More than 270 students and teachers attended these presentations. We presented Investigating an Infection from Eating Hamburger - What a Disease
Detective Does based on the 1992-1993 E. coli outbreak in the state of Washington.
