The convergence of people, animals, and our environment has created a new dynamic in which the health of each group is inextricably interconnected. Disease outbreaks associated with animals in public settings have been increasingly reported in recent years. Our increasing interdependence with animals and animal-based products is a critical factor to our health and well-being with regard to infectious diseases. Join us for this COCA call, where subject matter experts will discuss the importance of public health reporting of clusters of illness associated with animals in public settings and review CDC and National Association of State Public Health Veterinarians recommendations to minimize associated disease and injury risks related to animal contact.
At the conclusion of the session, the participant will be able to:
- Describe outbreaks associated with animals in public settings
- List common pathogens causing outbreaks associated with animals in public settings
- Identify common animals associated with outbreaks of enteric infections involving public settings
- Discuss recommendations to minimize disease risks associated with animals in public settings
