Sharing Our Knowledge
In early February, several District staff members had the
opportunity to share their knowledge with colleagues from around
the state at the Mosquito and Vector Control Association of
California 87th Annual Conference.
Laboratory Director Angie Nakano presented on tick control during a special symposium titled “Don’t Reinvent the Wheel: Past Vector Control Research and Practices Relevant Today”, Public Health Education and Outreach Officer Megan Sebay gave a presentation on program evaluation during the Community Engagement and Advocacy Symposium, and Vector Ecologist Tara Roth presented on techniques for rodent surveillance during the Operations symposium.
Since the conference was held locally in Burlingame this year, the rest of the District staff was able to attend the conference to hear updates and innovations from other mosquito and vector control districts across California.
