July 2020- A Call for K12 One Health Education of Vector Borne and Zoonotic Disease

On July 8th, Louisiana One Health In Action founder and director, Amy Kempainen LeBoeuf, made an urgent plea to the Federal Tick Borne Disease Working Group to include a K12 Educational strategy to prevent Vector Borne Disease in their 2020 report to HHS and Congress. The strategy calls for a fresh look at the National Health Education Standards through the lens of One Health to develop a more comprehensive Health education that includes prevention strategies of vector borne and zoonotic diseases for our children.
