EPA Webinar: Protecting Students from Mosquitoes & the Zika Virus at School

You are invited to a webinar: EPA
When: Tuesday, Sept.20
Time: 2-3:30 p.m. Eastern Time (US and Canada)
These days, we can’t turn to TV, radio, or social media without hearing alarming stories of Zika virus. Mosquito-borne diseases have been responsible for much suffering throughout human history. Today, the diseases they transmit in the United States and its territories, including Zika virus, Dengue, chikungunya virus, and several forms of encephalitis, are continuing threats.

Join us as we learn about the mosquitoes that are of concern to schools and the interim guidance the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offers for district and school administrators to help schools keep their students, faculty and staff safe from Zika virus. Also hear firsthand the steps a school district in Florida is taking to reduce mosquito populations in an effort to prevent mosquito-borne illness.

Our featured presenters are:

CDR Joseph Laco, US Public Health Service Environmental Health Scientist, CDC National Center for Environmental Health

Michael Merchant, Ph.D., Urban Entomologist, Texas A&M Research and Extension Center

Dan Lisenko, Grounds and Maintenance Manager, Manatee County (Florida) School District
