ONE HEALTH FOCUS: March 15 - 17 National Institute of Animal Agriculture (NIAA) Annual Meeting March 15-17, 2010 Kansas City, Mo.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                           

February 1, 2010

One Health’s ‘What,’ ‘So What’ to Animal Agriculture
Focus of NIAA’s 2010 Annual Meeting


COLORADO SPRINGS, CO—“One Health” is a worldwide strategy for expanding interdisciplinary collaborations and communications in all aspects of health care for humans and animals. Opening General Session speakers at the 2010 annual meeting of the National Institute for Animal Agriculture, March 15-17, in Kansas City, Mo., will zero in on the “What?” and “So What?” of the One Health concept as these two questions relate to animal agriculture.

“NIAA’s Opening General Session speakers will look at how the One Health initiative and strategies shift the focus from surveillance to intervention and prevention and how challenges need to be faced collectively rather than in individual silos and disciplines,” states Dr. Tony Forshey, co-chair of NIAA’s Annual Meeting Planning Committee. “When individuals leave the Tuesday morning Opening General Session, they will be up to speed about One Health and its implications for animal agriculture.”


NIAA’s lineup of Opening General Session topics and speakers include:

·       “One World, One Health: The Global Food Basket,” Dr. Corrie Brown, DVM, PhD, DACVP, University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine

·       “The Genesis of One Health: What It’s All About,” Dr. Roger Mahr, DVM, CEO, One Health Commission

·       "Past, Present and Future Veterinary Service's Roles in One Health," Dr. Joseph Annelli, One Health Coordinator, USDA/APHIS/Veterinary Services

·       “Environmental Health: How Does One Health Fit In?”, Jay Ellenberger, Deputy  Director, Environmental Protection Agency

·       “How Will One Health Impact Livestock Producers?”, Dr. Harry Snelson, DVM, American Association of Swine Veterinarians

·       “One Health in the Real World,” Dr. Billy Clay, DVM, MS, DABVT, AVMA Council on Public Health and Regulatory Veterinary Medicine, Vetta Consulting LLC


At the conclusion of the six Opening General Session presentations, the speakers will partake in a panel discussion and address questions from annual meeting attendees.


“We’re excited to have these highly qualified individuals talk about One Health so those of us involved in animal agriculture know as much as possible about this concept that has the attention of major medical organizations and health agencies and the endorsement of more than 400 prominent scientists, physicians and veterinarians worldwide,” Dr. Forshey states. “One Health is underway and gaining momentum. As such, we can either become knowledgeable and involved now or we can react to its impact on animal agriculture.”


Dr. Forshey adds that species-specific discussions surrounding One Health will take place during NIAA’s species-based committee meetings on Tuesday afternoon, March 16, and Wednesday, March 17. Species-based committees include Cattle, Swine, Poultry, Equine, and Sheep & Goat. Each committee meeting will have its own line-up of nationally recognized speakers and species-specific topics.


NIAA’s issue-based committee meetings on Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday will address Animal Care, Animal Health Emergency Management, Animal Health and International Trade, Animal Production Food Safety and Security, Emerging Diseases, and Animal Identification and Information Systems.  


NIAA’s species committee meetings and issue-based committee meetings are open to NIAA members and non-members.


NIAA’s annual meeting will take place at the Westin Crown Center in Kansas City, Mo., with a block of rooms reserved at a special nightly rate of $130/room, single or double occupancy. To receive this special rate, rooms must be reserved by Friday, Feb. 12, by calling 816-474-4400 and specifying that you are with the National Institute for Animal Agriculture.


A schedule of events for NIAA’s 2010 annual meeting, meeting registration, list of NIAA committees and hotel information are available at the NIAA website: www.animalagriculture.org.   Individuals are also welcome to call NIAA at (719) 538-8843.


The National Institute for Animal Agriculture (NIAA) is a non-profit, membership-driven organization that unites and advances animal agriculture—the beef, dairy, equine, goat, poultry, sheep and swine industries. NIAA is dedicated to programs that work towards the eradication of diseases that pose risk to the health of animals, wildlife and humans; promote a safe and wholesome food supply for our national and abroad; and promote best practices in environmental stewardship, animal health and well-being.  NIAA members represent producers, veterinarians, scientists, state and federal officials, and business executives.

Symposium to examine emerging MRSA threat - Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine - March 20, 2010 - Friday, February 12, 2010

 Symposium to examine emerging MRSA threat - Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine - March 20, 2010

Columbus, OH - On Saturday, March 20, 2010 experts in infectious diseases and on MRSA in animals will convene a day-long symposium to explore the human and animal health threats posed by this emerging health problem. Health workers are aware that Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) can be transferred from person to person; they may be less aware of the risks posed to animals by human transmission, and may not know that animals can transfer the pathogen to humans.

Experts at the symposium will present a description of this pathogen and of other Methicillin-resistant Staphylococci, as well as offer a summary of their epidemiology and their impact on humans and animals. The symposium is targeted to both human health professionals and animal health professionals. This "One Health, One Medicine" approach to studying this pathogens offers a broader understanding of the impact of the diseases in the human health setting as well as veterinary setting.

The two featured keynote speakers are Dr. Scott Weese, recognized internationally for his work on MRSA in animals, and Dr. Paul Morley, an infectious diseases control expert. Dr. Weese will provide a worldwide MRSA update; Dr. Morley will describe handling MRSA cases to decrease the risk of diseases transmission in veterinary settings.

Registration for the symposium is available at The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine Office of Veterinary Continuing Education. On-line registration requires establishing a log-in name and password. Cost for the full day meeting is $60 ($35 for students). Registration can also be mailed or faxed. A downloadable PDF of a brochure is also available. For more information and links to both methods of registration, please visit the Office of Veterinary Continuing Education web site.

The Mythical Interagency

 "After 17 years in the field as an NGO provider, I [Dr. Lawry] decided I should write a book called "How to Build an Interagency". The first chapter will be "How Not to Build An Interagency". From Rwanda to Haiti, I have seen renditions of interagency growth, bumbles, mis-steps, success and absolute failures. NSPD-44 requires Interagency coordination (not defined as per who is part of this elite organization); but it is not a step-by-step guide on how to ACTUALLY meet that directive. The USG frequently checks the block by have an "Interagency" email list but who actually meets regularly or shares office space? I will challenge us to re-look at Interagency bumbles and see where and how mistakes could have been avoided and where success actually happened despite our best efforts to squelch participation."



There is a 50 person limit to the meeting so we suggest you

 register early.The cost of the evening is $15 per person and

 includes dinner, discussion with colleagues, and networking.

Superbug, Super Problems: Agricultural Antibiotics & Emerging Infections
September 16, 2010
11 am-12 noon PDT/12 noon-1 pm MDT/1-2 pm CDT/2-3 pm EDT

The new scientific consensus is that routine, unnecessary use of antibiotics in livestock and poultry contributes significantly to a costly epidemic of antibiotic resistance. One result is the emergence of new infections with farm links, including Salmonella resistant to multiple drugs (including the critical cephalosporins), resistant E. coli, and MRSA.
