CFSPH - Zoonoses: Protecting People and Animals in Rural Communities
The Center for Food Security and Public Health (CFSPH) at Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine is now offering the web-based continuing education course, Zoonoses: Protecting People and Animals in Rural Communities.
The self-paced course costs $125 and has been approved for 5 CEU by the American Association of Veterinary State Boards (AAVSB) Registry of Approved Continuing Education (RACE®).
The course overviews the occurrence and impact of zoonotic diseases of agricultural animals – cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, equids and poultry – with an emphasis on prevention measures to reduce health risks for people and animals. The course also includes communication tips to promote zoonotic disease prevention strategies and veterinary practices in rural communities.
Registration is now open, but closes November 11, 2022 (or when capacity is reached).
While the course was developed for veterinarians and veterinary technicians, it is applicable to animal health, human health and public health professionals or anyone interested in preventing zoonotic diseases.
