The Ohio PBRN’s RIA study investigates the structure, process, and outcomes of public health agency roles in foodborne illness prevention, investigation, and control, utilizing a mixed methods approach. The study will develop, test, and validate a novel, direct observation methodology for measurement. Direct-observation measures will then be used in a comparative analysis of local variation in public health practices for foodborne illness.
