Chronic wasting disease outreach expands to multilingual communities

December 16, 2019

New multilingual outreach events and materials have been released around chronic wasting disease (CWD). Fact sheets are now available in Korean, Khmer, and Hmong languages to reach those Minnesota hunting communities, along with special communications materials tailored to the Amish community in southeast Minnesota. This joint initiative was developed by the Minnesota Center for Prion Research and Outreach and the Center for Animal Health and Food Safety, and requested by Minnesota state legislators and multilingual community members. 

CWD resources will continue to be developed in additional languages as they are requested to support safe and well-informed decision making for all Minnesotans who interact with deer, moose, and other cervids.
