Recent outbreaks of plague, tularemia and increasing incidents of rabies exposure highlight the importance of zoonotic disease education for veterinarians, physicians, and public health professionals. Prevention and response efforts will require a One Health approach. The Center for Food Security and Public Health (CFSPH) at Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine will offer a web-based course, Zoonoses: Protecting People and Their Pets, from October 19 - November 27, 2016.
This popular course provides an excellent opportunity for medical and public health professionals and students to refresh and gain knowledge of key zoonotic diseases of companion animals. The course is web-based and includes lessons, case studies, a discussion board and online resources to assist course participants in educating clients about zoonotic disease prevention. The course is approved for 10 hours of continuing education for veterinarians or veterinary technicians in jurisdictions which recognize AAVSB approval.
The cost to register is $125, which includes a copy of the companion textbook ($70 value).
