Coccidioidomycosis Among California Hispanic Farm Workers
The proposed work will contribute to the overall goal of reducing coccidioidomycosis in agricultural workers by (1) conducting a survey to assess knowledge, attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors regarding coccidioidomycosis among 100 agricultural workers in Kern County, California, a highly endemic area; (2) conducting a case-control study (100 cases, 100 controls) to identify crops and agricultural work activities associated with coccidioidomycosis; and (3) exploratory sampling of respirable dusts for Coccidioides.
