Employee and Visitor Perceptions and Precautions related to Lyme Disease Risk in Florida State Parks

Given the growing concern about emergent infectious diseases and their potential implications for both the supply and demand for tourism, this study will provide the data necessary for informing individual, community, and industry health risk management decision-making, occupational risk training, and public health interventions by Florida State Parks, Visit Florida, Florida Department of Health, and tourism operators. Employees with state agencies involved in land management, conservation, and outdoor recreation will be asked to complete a survey about their knowledge, risk perceptions, precautionary behavior, and exposure to ticks and tick-borne diseases at work. This study will inform the development of tick-borne disease risk assessment tools, longitudinal and comparative studies, educational interventions and training programs, and future research designed to prevent tick-borne diseases and mitigate its impacts in Florida. This project is led by Dr. Holly Donohoe and Dr. Lori Pennington-Gray. This project is funded by the Bill Sims Faculty Grant administered by EFTI and the Travel and Tourism Research Association.

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
