PERC med was operated through a cooperative agreement between the US EPA and UC Davis Continuing & Professional Education in cooperation with Oregon State University (2017-2023).
The Pesticide Training Gap
PERC-med provides continuing education, training, and technical assistance to relevant audiences, including high-quality, accredited distance-learning modules.
Keep it Short and Simple
PERC-med updates existing and/or develops new materials and resource tools. Guided by a needs assessment, these resources include accredited web-based training modules, videos, guidance documents, mobile apps, databases, and other items.
Spreading the Word
PERC-med conducts outreach to existing and new audiences to use materials and tools by partnering with gatekeeper organizations, curating a website for medical professionals with links to resources (old and new).
PERC-med develops partnerships and a sustainable network of stakeholders. PERC-med invigorates existing partnerships and seeks new ones with medical professionals and organizations that serve/inform them.
Guided by Experts
PERC-med is informed by an expert Advisory Board, responsive to needs-assessment, and proactive in marketing/evaluation of materials.
