Health knowledge made personal
I am an Environmental Health Officer with a special interest in Vector Control. In fact, I function in the capacity of a Vector Control Programme Manager with the Government of the British Virgin Islands. Previously, I worked as an EHO in the Commonwealth of Dominica.
Woodshed Environment Coalition is but the first phase of a larger effort to attract other EHO's and Vector professionals into a loose organization whose aim it would be to keep the peoples of our region and others abreast of the Environmental Health issues that matter to us. The goal is not merely to discuss those issues though; each and every post we write must speak to the role that community members can play to deter the spread of infectious diseases and thereby reduce human suffering and loss of productivity.
My blog is overly concentrated on Dengue prevention and control now. However, it is envisaged that as authors come on board and the Coalition grows, the broad range of Environmental Health disciplines will eventually receive generous coverage on our pages.
