Rat Lungworm Disease Prevention Workshops

The research-driven lessons will empower students as well-informed educators on all aspects of the issue and they in turn relay the information to their families and communities. The integrated pest management plan and lessons developed for grades 5-8 contain information pertaining to the parasite, its hosts, the disease and disease prevention, and are aligned with State and Federal standards.

Teacher knowledge is valued and course participants will develop materials that will be added to the existing curriculum at the end of the course. The IPM plan and curriculum was provided with support from the Hawaii Invasive Species Council and the Daniel K. Inouye College of Pharmacy at UHH.

Need for Funding

The PDE course is being supported with funding from the Hawaii Community Foundation through a Career Connected Learning Grant, The Hawaii Department of Health, the Oahu School Garden Network, the Hawaii Farm to School Hui, and the Daniel K. Inouye College of Pharmacy at the University of Hawaii, Hilo.

Hawaii Island schools are generously hosting workshop locations and acting as partners. Funding is still needed to ensure success of the course, provide scholarships for participants, and expand these efforts, not only statewide, but to the mainland as well. Potential funders can contact Dr. Susan Jarvi at jarvi@hawaii.edu

Private donations can be made to the University of Hawaii Foundation revolving account for project #0002878. Checks can be made payable to the Research Corporation of the University of Hawaii (RCUH).
