Join us in Florida for the 2024 Vector Control Hurricane Crisis Workshop

Mar 12, 2024 | Anu Varma

Local vector control programs in North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, and Puerto Rico affected by 2022 Hurricanes Fiona and Ian are invited to attend.

Have you heard? The National Association of County and City Health Officials’ upcoming workshop in April 2024 will help increase the collective capacity of vector control programs in areas affected by 2022 Hurricanes Fiona and Ian. The theme for the workshop, Managing Mosquitoes in Disaster Situations: Best Practices and Partnerships, emphasizes the challenges and opportunities of managing mosquitoes in disaster situations, such as hurricanes, floods, or epidemics. It also focuses on the best practices and partnerships that can help vector control professionals like you to implement and maintain effective integrated vector management programs.

Who is invited?

Local vector control programs in North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, and Puerto Rico affected by 2022 Hurricanes Fiona and Ian.

What will this workshop offer you?

The workshop will instruct low-resource, impacted jurisdictions on how to detect, prevent, prepare for, and respond to mosquito-borne diseases. You will learn the essentials of implementing and maintaining a surveillance program, key considerations for vector control both pre- and post-hurricane, and best practices for data use and risk communication. You will get to engage with colleagues and counterparts from across the region as well as with vector-borne disease experts from the state, federal, and industry levels. See our past workshops to get an idea.

Where is the workshop being held and for how long?

The workshop will be held at Anastasia Mosquito Control District’s Disease Vector Education Center in St. Augustine, Florida from April 22-25, 2024 (April 22 is considered a travel day). There will be hotels nearby and transportation to the facility will be provided.
