    The US Department of Defense in partnership with Delta Area Economic Opportunity Corporation (DAEOC) hosted Operation Trident Innovative Readiness Training (IRT).

No proof of insurance or identification was needed. University of Missouri Extension in the Southeast Region provided an exhibit table each day during this event. This was a good opportunity for us to be in a controlled environment where we could inform people in the community about our programming. In order for us to successfully serve the community, we have to let them know about us, and this was a great opportunity to work with our community partners.

    Military healthcare providers saw a total of 1,337 patients during the effort, which kicked off on June 14. Healthcare providers performed a total of 11,964 medical, dental, optometric and other healthcare procedures during the mission, with a total estimated value to the community of $1,359,920.
    While the primary purpose of the mission was to conduct deployment and readiness training for military personnel, incidental to military readiness training, the DAEOC Tri-State IRT teams provided healthcare services to assist local authorities in addressing underserved and unmet community health needs.

To meet the legal requirement mandated by the Environmental Protection Agency and the Missouri Department of Agriculture’s Bureau for Pesticide Control for obtaining certification, an aspiring private applicator must fulfill one to the following: 1) attend a training program conducted by a local regional extension specialist, or 2) complete a self-study tutorial course through the use of an interactive CD-ROM or video/workbook in their local University of Missouri Extension Center. To keep the certification valid, the private applicator is required to renew once every five years by repeating the same process.
