In 1997, Dr. Fidler became CDC’s Academic Liaison assigned to the BUSPH, working with the Practice Office to increase opportunities for student field placements, and on several initiatives to assess and improve the practice of public health at the state and local level. Dr. Fidler led CDC’s efforts on two national surveys of local health jurisdictions conducted with the Department of Homeland Security to assess public health emergency preparedness for bioterrorism. Dr. Fidler has been an Editorial Advisor to Public Health Reports, and has served on a number of local, state, and national advisory boards related to occupational health and public health practice.
