Invest in Your Health: Prevention of Zoonotic Diseases (Trainer Module)

This Train the Trainer course is designed for teachers, Extension staff, 4H and FFA leaders and others who work with young adults. Agricultural producers are at high risk for acquiring a zoonotic disease related to their work environment with minimal information related to risks, symptoms and prevention. The majority of emerging infectious diseases in the U.S. are zoonotic in nature. They are often difficult to determine and many go unreported for a variety of reasons.
At the end of the presentation, participants will be able to:
  1. Define zoonotic disease and identify various modes of transmission; 
  2. Locate recommended educational resources for use in educational programs; 
  3. Discuss warning signs and symptoms of major zoonotic diseases; 
  4. Identify zoonotic diseases affecting the production agricultural population
