Students receive vital information on zoonotic diseases such as SARS, Rift Valley fever, and avian influenza, including steps typically taken to manage and mitigate the spread of these illnesses. Creutzfeld-Jacob disease is also discussed. An experienced virology specialist discusses the science behind each of these diseases and current efforts to combat them.
