New Air and Soil Testing for Valley Fever

Hear about it on Valley Fever Survivor Radio!

The University of Arizona College of Public Health's Dr. Joe Tabor is our guest on Valley Fever Survivor Radio to discuss his recent project: to detect Valley Fever's spores in the air and soil far more cheaply than ever before.

"Because the potentially fatal valley fever fungi are so difficult to isolate from the soil and air I am developing an improved and less expensive petri dish method that does not use laboratory animals. Your tax deductible donations will allow me to validate my method in North, Central, and South America. Funding that exceed the minimum Goal will also be used to collect ecological and exposure data."

You can learn more about the project and donate to its funding here:

Part 2 will air tomorrow.
