KDA, KDHE to Offer One Health Zoonotic Disease Workshop
The Kansas Department of Agriculture Division of Animal Health and the Kansas Department of Health and Environment are jointly hosting a workshop related to zoonotic diseases, those that can pass between animals and humans. The workshop, “One Health Zoonotic Disease Workshop,” is the collaboration of multiple disciplines to improve both human and animal health. More than two hundred diseases are considered zoonotic. Some of these diseases are endemic in Kansas and are reportable to public health or animal health authorities when diagnosed in humans and/or animals.
This workshop is designed for healthcare providers, veterinarians and public health professionals. The training will include information on clinical disease, treatment, regulatory and public health involvement. Registration is free and continuing education has been approved for veterinarians and is pending for nurses and physicians. Contact Tarrie Crnic at Tarrie.Crnic@kda.ks.gov or 785-296-2326 to RSVP for one of the workshops.
Workshops will be offered at the following locations:
