Arias, Ph.D., of the Fairfax Health Department's Disease Carrying Insects Program was awarded the Volunteer of the Year recognition at its annual conference this year.

Dr. Arias was commended for his outstanding contributions to the furtherance of mosquito control education and outreach programs in Fairfax County, Va. and to communities around the world. The Fairfax County program has an outstanding education and outreach program comprised of committed biologists, entomologists and community outreach staff. This team has developed outstanding brochures, calendars and books used for community education efforts.

In March of 2011 the Fairfax County program joined with the AMCA to provide their educational materials to all communities and non-profits to personalize and use in their communities. This most generous gesture allows communities to have high quality educational materials without the upfront design and development costs.
