Zoonosis refers to a disease that can spread from animals to humans, and a Georgetown seminar will offer an opportunity to explore issues related to the topic that are faced by local health and public service agencies.

Several speakers have been engaged to present during the two-day event, and they will be discussing topics ranging from rabies to the control and management of dangerous dogs. There is no fee to register, and continuing education credits may be available for any attendees who qualify.

The symposium will open with a discussion of rabies from a variety of perspectives, and this will include a review of the state laws concerning the disease and its control. The management of dogs that have been deemed dangerous is also on the agenda. The second day will be dedicated to tips for the conduction an investigation of a reported case of rabies, as well as puppy mills and dog bites.

The organizers noted that the event will run from 8:00 am until 8:00 pm on both days. Note pads, presentation folders, promotional pens, and other swag for this type of occasion can be designed and produced by an area printer.

This opportunity for those who work in the field of animal control, animal welfare, and public health will be held on October 3 and 4 in the Georgetown Public Safety Operations and Training Center. More details can be found by contacting
