- The Epidemiology Program helps protect the residents of the Commonwealth from foodborne illnesses, emerging infectious illnesses, and other communicable diseases. Major goals of the program are:
- the prevention of rabies in humans and domestic animals (of critical importance since the arrival of the raccoon rabies epizootic in the fall of 1992),
- the surveillance of emerging and re-emerging infections and
- interruption of transmission of communicable diseases.
