Symposium Overview

Prevention of Avian Influenza is of paramount importance to both public health and animal health sectors. Partnership between the two sectors is a critical success factor for mitigating risk and communicating prevention strategies particularly with respect to public health impact, on farm biosecurity, worker health protection, and food safety. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention arranged for four scientists with expertise to address these issues via webcast for State Health Department and Poultry Industry representatives.
