The Center for Food Security and Public Health (CFSPH) at Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine is now offering a web-based course, Animal Disease Emergencies: Understanding the Response. The cost for the course is $100.

This web-based, awareness level course is designed for anyone who may be involved in an animal disease response – veterinary and animal health responders, livestock or poultry producers and industry groups, wildlife managers and officers. Traditional responders, including emergency managers, law enforcement, firefighters, public health, will also benefit and learn about roles they may have during a response.


Dr. Glenda Dvorak, DVM, MPH, DACVPM, course instructor, Assistant Director, CFSPH, explains, “The response to a livestock or poultry disease outbreak will involve the coordination and collaboration of a number of professions, industries and agencies. This course introduces key concepts related to the response for a livestock or poultry disease emergency. It highlights the actions needed to detect, contain and control these diseases, to better prepare responders for their tasks during the response.”


The course is approved for 4.0 hours of veterinary continuing education credit in jurisdictions which recognize AAVSB RACE approval.
