Program Update: Annual Training Workshops for State Agencies Completed


The objectives of this year’s workshop were to review the wildlife disease surveillance plans that we created last year, and to work through some disease scenarios in order to finalize the nuts and bolts of the plans. The overarching goal is to generate working documents that are actively referred to by agency staff, and that can be distributed to collaborating organizations and agencies in each state. From May – July, we completed workshops in seven member states (ME, NH, VT, MA, CT, NJ, DE). We are very impressed by the progress made by our state members on their surveillance plans this year.
