Iowa State University Offering Online Animal Disease Emergency Response Course this September

Thu, 31 Aug 2017 11:43:44 CDT

Iowa State University Offering Online Animal Disease Emergency Response Course this September Animal disease emergencies involving livestock and poultry diseases of high consequence or foreign origin will have serious economic consequences at the local, state and national level. The rapid detection and response needed will require the collaboration of trained responders.



The Center for Food Security and Public Health (CFSPH) at Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine will offer a web-based course, Animal Disease Emergencies: Understanding the Response, September 20-30, 2017.



The cost for the course is $100. To find out more and to register, click here.



This awareness level, web-based course is designed for anyone who may be involved in an animal disease response, including veterinary and animal health responders, livestock or poultry industry groups, and producers. Traditional responders, such as emergency managers, law enforcement and fire department professionals can also benefit and learn the roles they may have during responses.



Dr. Glenda Dvorak, DVM, MPH, DACVPM, course instructor, Assistant Director, CFSPH, explains, “This course will help responders gain a better understanding of animal disease emergencies, the response organization, coordination, tasks and goals, which will help better prepare our nation for an effective and efficient response for these situations.”
