Notice to Readers: Satellite Broadcast and Webcast on Managing Rodents and Mosquitoes
CDC will present "Managing Rodents and Mosquitoes through Integrated Pest Management," a live, interactive satellite broadcast and webcast on September 18, 2003, from 1:00--2:30 p.m., EDT. The program will provide information on the need for local health authorities to implement integrated pest management (IPM) as a systems approach in the management of pests and vectors. IPM focuses on the management of the environment in a manner that is effective, safe, economical, and sustained and emphasizes surveillance, community education and outreach, sanitation, and code development and enforcement on a community-wide basis. A question and answer session will enable participants nationwide to ask questions to panelists through toll-free telephone, fax, or TTY lines.
The target audience for this program includes environmental health program directors, managers, and practitioners; directors of health departments and other public health officials; public health nurses; environmental protection practitioners; policy makers; boards of health; academic institutions; national advocacy organizations; and civic leaders.
