Wastewater Disease Surveillance, Pathogens and Public Health: What we’ve learned, best practices and what the future holds
Wastewater Disease Surveillance (WDS) has grown in prevalence and importance over the past two-plus years of the COVID-19 pandemic, and its use is expanding worldwide to encompass other pathogens as well as opioids and other illegal drugs.
What do the present and future of WDS look like? As its use expands, it will be important to stay ahead of the learning curve. Municipalities, agencies and organizations that answer to the public will be asked what is being done at local levels to track and prevent illnesses before they reach pandemic levels. WDS is proving to be an important answer to that question.
Please join us for this 45-minute webinar, plus interactive Q&A, hosted by Rich Skradski, Northeast Regional Manager for Teledyne ISCO, and special guest presenter Dr. Jason Vogel, Director of the Oklahoma Water Survey and a Professor of Civil Engineering and Environmental Science at the University of Oklahoma.
These two experts will share the current best sampling practices, where WDS is already being implemented at the local, regional and federal levels, and what the future holds. This critical information will become increasingly relevant in the fight to protect the public health. In addition to what you’ll learn, this webinar is your opportunity to ask the experts questions relevant to your specific situation and applications.
