Be a Zoonotic Disease Detective Activity Book (4H1671)


4-H and the Centers for Disease Control have formed a partnership to help you learn more about zoonoses and how to protect yourself against disease. Whether you have pets at home, show livestock, or visit a petting zoo, protecting yourself against the transfer of disease can often be accomplished through practicing healthy habits. Join in in becoming Disease Detectives to explore the microorganisms behind these diseases and ways to protect yourself and others from the spread of germs!
