Veterinary Food Safety Education Learning Object Repository Partners

Design to Dissemination: Food Safety Education Project (D2D)
The USDA-funded D2D Project is a collaboration of three "content" partners: the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine (UW) as the lead institution, with distance education strengths, University of Georgia Center for Food Safety (UGA) and its basic microbiology expertise, and Texas A&M University College of Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences (TAMU) bringing their clinical experience and perspective.

Each of these partners has a Project Coordinator and faculty collaborators to serve as content experts. We also have faculty collaborators from the University of California at Davis, Colorado State University, and Iowa State University.


University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine (UW)
The D2D project staff at UW is the team of the Technology for Learning Center (TLC). The staff at the TLC has been developing and delivering distance education courses and learning objects in health care education since 1998, under the direction of the Project Director for this proposal.

D2D Project Personnel:

  1. Dr. Jeannette McDonald, Project Director
  2. Peg Volkman, Senior Editor
  3. Eileen Horn, Web Designer
  4. CK Worrell, Media Specialist
  5. Dr. Chere Gibson, Project Evaluator


University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine and the Center for Food Safety (UGA)
UGA has two specialty training programs for veterinarians seeking careers in the food animal industries, Master of Avian Medicine and Master of Food Animal Medicine. They have also just begun a dual degree program in which students can concurrently earn the DVM and Master of Public Health (MPH).

D2D Project Personnel:

  1. Dr. Marilyn Erickson, Program Coordinator
  2. Jean Liao, Information Supervisor


Texas A & M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences (TAMU)
The TAMU College of Veterinary Medicine offers masters degrees in epidemiology and veterinary public health. The college also has a large undergraduate biomedical sciences program that enrolls more than 2000 students.

D2D Project Personnel:

  1. Dr. Geoffrey Fosgate, Program Coordinator


University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB)
The UTMB School of Allied Health Sciences (SAHS) Department of Clinical Laboratory Sciences (CLS; formerly Medical Technology) was formed in 1968 when the SAHS was established. The CLS Department offers a two-year curriculum whereby students, upon completion of 60 semester hours of college credit, progress directly to the professional curriculum. Building on the Clinical Laboratory Sciences Learning Object Repository they developed through a US Department of Education FIPSE grant, UTMB provides the customization, maintenance, and upkeep of the learning object database and the Repository for Integrative Veterinary Food Safety Education.

UTMB Project Personnel:

  1. Dr. Vicki Freeman, Program Coordinator
  2. Toby Smith, Programmer
