dc.description This publication came about as a result of research presented at the 6th International Workshop on Angiostrongylus and Angiostrogyliasis (colloquially known as rat lungworm disease) held in Hilo, HI, in January of 2020. We have published the scientific details of many of these studies in a Special Issue of Parasitology (Feb 2021) Vol. 148 (Coordinating Editor JT Ellis, Guest Editor SI Jarvi). Prior International Workshops have been held in Thailand (2010), Hawai’i (2011), China (2013), Australia (2016), then again in Thailand (2017), and Hawai’i in (2020). These Workshops bring together researchers from all over the world who are conducting the most cutting-edge research on a wide variety of topics related to this parasite and the disease it causes. These workshops are crucial for advancing research and knowledge not only about diagnosis and treatment, but on research relating to infection and transmission levels and the many influencing factors involved, as well as documenting the seemingly expanding range of infection in non-human species. Perhaps most importantly, research on ways of reducing ones risk of infection in the first place is critical, including the development of mechanisms and tools for enhanced public education. We feel that the results of these scientific studies should not be limited to those familiar with ‘sciencespeak’, but to be more inclusive and provide a less technical interpretation of these findings which is accurate, informative, and reader-friendly for the general population. Members of the general population are, in fact, all at risk from this potentially deadly disease, thus we are providing this publication free-of-charge to those interested. en_US
