UPCOMING EVENT – 6 LOCATIONS ACROSS THE STATE
Local Response to Zoonotic Disease Outbreaks: Tabletop Scenario Exercise Training –
This training will help to prepare human and animal health professionals and local responders for a major zoonotic disease outbreak in Ohio via two tabletop scenarios with significant impact at the local level.
During the interactive exercises the participants will discuss the roles/responsibilities of different agencies and professionals during the early stages of a major outbreak involving human and animal disease, with serious public health and agricultural implications.
This exercise will prompt trainees to prepare for trending social media/public panic and to respond to familiar, unfamiliar, suspicious, and potentially significant circumstances at the local level.
The dynamics of this activity will provide an environment conducive to networking and connection-building amongst participants from multiple disciplines and backgrounds.
