Animal Disease Emergency Response Online Course Offered in September – Center for Food Security and Public Health

Open September 2017

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, visit:

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.
GlendaDvorak_WebDr. 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.”

Final day to register for the AVPH webinar on Biosecurity and Smallholders

As I am on a hiatus from social media (well, Facebook to be more precise), it’s hard to get notices out of events that may be of interest.

However, it can’t help to give a final push via the Veterinary Careers news section

On the 18th of May, the AVPH are hosting a 1hr webinar on smallholders and biosecurity.

As a veterinarian who has a thing or two to say about surveillance and biosecurity, there are some genuine concerns about how we can engage with such producers/farmers/enthusiasts.

This webinar is part of a bigger planned output from AVPH and the AVA.

On the 9th of June, the AVPH will be hosting a 1-day workshop at the University of Melbourne that is designed for private practitioners who want to upskill their technical skills and knowledge of notifiable diseases with regards to smallholder farmers. This is a collaboration with DPI NSW, Agriculture Victoria, The Mackinnon Project (University of Melbourne), Charles Sturt University and 3M. Further details can be found on the AVA website.

DPI NSW have also launched a 2 hour, free e-learning webinar to provide Australian veterinarians with the foundational know-how of how biosecurity works within Australia as well as valuable resources. Further details are in the link below and requires registration on the DPI’s EMTrain website

Lots going on, but a fun time to get involved.

See you all tomorrow at the webinar!
