WORLD VETERINARY CONGRESS, ÝSTANBUL - 2015

 

 

 

“…The 32nd World Veterinary Congress will be held in Istanbul 13th to 17th of September, 2015 organized by Turkish Veterinary Medical Association (TVMA) …

 

As we all know that, veterinarians play a leading role for performing disease surveillance of specific zoonoses and therefore, they are central to the human–animal relationship in terms of one health concept. So that, the risks regardless of whether they are threaten animals, humans or both, can be prevented at their source in animals.

 

Within the scope of one health concept, all necessary measures are needed to be taken for control and eradication of animal diseases, also here in Turkey. While speaking about the measures, the measures like; programmed and strategic vaccination, quarantine, test applications, cleaning and disinfection, slaughtering of animals, control of animal movements, and closure of the inappropriate livestock markets can be given as examples. At this point, I should add that, Turkey has already succeeded to eradicate some animal diseases and the efforts continue to achieve the same success for widely distributed animal diseases.

Penn Vet, Penn Medicine, and CHOP to Host Second Annual Microbiome Symposium - Wednesday, October 28, 2015, from 6-7:30pm

 

Featuring Dr. Jo Handelsman of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy

 

[September 30, 2015; Philadelphia, PA] – Antibiotic resistance. Innate immunity. Pathogenic microbes. Research on the microbiome continues to pique the interest of many, as scientists explore how bacteria, parasites, viruses, and other organisms interact with their animal and human hosts in ways that either maintain health or lead to disease. These topics and more will be discussed at the upcoming Microbiome Symposium, presented by Penn Vet’s Center for Host-Microbial Interactions and the PennCHOP Microbiome Program.

 

The two-day symposium will begin with a special public event – a discussion with Dr. Jo Handelsman, Associate Director for Science at the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP). Her talk, “The Earth's Microbiomes: Opportunities for Research and Policy,” will take place on Wednesday, October 28, 2015, from 6-7:30pm at Penn Vet’s Hill Pavilion (380 S. University Ave., Philadelphia). According to Dr. Handelsman, there is tremendous potential for managing microbiomes to achieve beneficial outcomes for human health, agricultural productivity, clean energy supply, environmental health, and the economy. However, she believes that a new approach to microbiome research is needed. Admission to this event is FREE, but registration is recommended at http://www.vet.upenn.edu/CHMI-Symposium-2015.

 

Presentations for the scientific community will take place on Thursday, October 29, 2015, at the Biomedical Research Building (421 Curie Blvd., Philadelphia). Registration is available here.

 

Dr. Jo Handelsman was appointed to her position by President Obama and confirmed by the Senate in June of 2014. In this role, she helps to advise President Obama on the implications of science for the nation, ways in which science can inform U.S. policy, and federal efforts in support of scientific research.

 

Dr. Handelsman is an expert in communication among bacteria that associate with soil, plants, and insects. She helped pioneer the field of metagenomics, bridging agricultural and medical sciences. She is also recognized for her research on science education and women and minorities in science, and received the Presidential Award for Excellence in Science Mentoring in 2011. Dr. Handelsman also co-chaired the PCAST working group that developed the 2012 report, “Engage to Excel,” which contained recommendations to the President to strengthen STEM education to meet the workforce needs of the next decade in the United States.

 

Prior to joining OSTP, Dr. Handelsman was the Howard Hughes Medical Institute Professor and Frederick Phineas Rose Professor in the Department of Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology at Yale University. She received a B.S. from Cornell University and a Ph.D. in Molecular Biology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

About the Center for Host-Microbial Interactions

 

Penn Vet’s Center for Host-Microbial Interactions is designed to facilitate collaborative projects that leverage genomics to study the intersection of microbes and disease. In doing so, researchers gain insight into how bacteria, parasites, viruses, and other organisms interact with their animal and human hosts in ways that either maintain health or lead to disease. Each year, the Center invites researchers to submit proposals for funding. Additionally, the Center provides ongoing support and training for Penn Vet faculty and their labs to carry out analyses of the complex datasets generated by genomic approaches. For more information about the Center, click here.  

 

About the PennCHOP Microbiome Program

 

Each of us lives in association with vast numbers of microbes that colonize our bodies and influence our long-term health. Many trillions of microbes—too small to be seen by the naked eye--live in our guts and elsewhere on our bodies. These microbes contribute to health by helping with digestion, guiding growth of our immune systems, and shouldering out invading pathogens. Human individuals differ greatly in the composition of their microbiota, and evidence suggests that distinctive populations in each of us influence our health in unique ways. The University of Pennsylvania and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia have launched a Microbiome Program to take advantage of new research in this area to advance the health of children and adults. The goals of the PennCHOP Microbiome Program are to understand the human microbiome and alter its priorities to improve health.

NIAA’s ABX Symposium Develops Vital Relationships, Common Ground

 

 

 

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — “We’re all coming to the same conclusion, at the same time,” says Dr. Mike Apley, Professor, Production Medicine/ Clinical Pharmacology at Kansas State University and key speaker at the upcoming NIAA-hosted Antibiotics Symposium to be held in Atlanta, November 3-5.

“Animal agriculture, veterinarian medicine, human medicine… we are all seeing that our new antibiotic pipeline is going to be much, much more limited,” he says. Apley was interviewed for SwineCast this week on his involvement with the Symposium. (
http://traffic.libsyn.com/animalcast/2015ABX_Apley.mp3)

Apley says the Symposium’s purpose of working to build a bridge between animal health and human health is important for both mutual fact-checking and to build relationships. “We are all in this together,” he says. “We can learn a lot from how each is approaching this. We can’t let this break down into Us vs. Them, with lines drawn. We have to make sure we are talking about things together.”

 

 

 

The Symposium’s theme this year is Antibiotics Stewardship: From Metrics to Management. Apley admits that coming up with a definitive yardstick to measure risk benefits that all parties can agree on will be very difficult. However, the opportunity to have the conversation, face to face, in the same room is what he finds exciting about NIAA’s Symposium.

 


“If we just exchange information through social media or press releases, we’re never going to move this anywhere,” says Apley. He looks forward to having discussions with people who are dealing with patients, whether those patients are human, food animals or pets, about what they are seeing and hearing. “That’s how we are going to find common ground to work together,” says Apley.

 


This is the 5th annual NIAA-hosted Symposium on the subject, bringing together industry experts, academia, public health officials and animal and human health professionals for presentations and discussions, and the second with working sessions on finding a system of measurement to manage this important concern. According to Apley, the US is very data-driven on this issue and the FDA has been instrumental in keeping scientific analysis at the forefront.

NIAA Antibiotics Symposium Brings Together Industry Leaders in Animal and Human Health – Nov 3-5, 2015

 

Colorado Springs, Colo. – The National Institute for Animal Agriculture (NIAA) will be hosting its fifth annual antibiotic symposium, November 3-5, 2015 in Atlanta, Ga., at the Crowne Plaza Atlanta Midtown. This year’s conference is titled, Antibiotic Stewardship: From Metrics to Management and will be a unique forum bringing together leading researchers, government officials, retailers, and industry professionals in animal and human health.

 

Dr. Steve Solomon, [MD], a physician will be the Symposium’s moderator and brings over 30 years experience with the National Center for Emerging & Zoonotic Infectious Diseases at the Center for Disease Control.  He currently owns a consulting agency -- Global Public Health Consulting. “This is not just a gathering to discuss the challenges faced by the varied sectors,” says Dr. Solomon. “It is about a rich exchange of information, the development of a metrics framework, and moving forward on this very contentious and vital subject.”

 

NIAA has been at the forefront of driving the conversation about antibiotic use in animal agriculture and the related human health component. With increased consumer interest on this subject, and government focus on the rise, solutions from this diverse group of professionals and leaders will go a long way in filling the information gap that exists in the public and private sectors. 

 

Solomon goes on to say, “It’s important to hear from people we don’t necessarily agree with. Everyone’s goal is to use antibiotics in an optimal way.”

One Health

 

 Application deadline is 1 April 2016

 

The international summer course One Health aims to provide knowledge, skills and competences regarding efficient solutions to the multifaceted global challenges to human, animal and environmental health through cross- disciplinary research, education and collaboration between relevant institutions and stakeholders. The summer course primarily focuses on zoonoses, emerging diseases, and emerging health-related problems (drug resistance, toxins, pollution, etc.).

 

The Summer Course provides insight into and a critical overview of the methods used in the One Health approach by drawing on the successful Danish and/or international achievements characterized by widely cross-disciplinary collaboration between public authorities, public administrations, research bodies and industry sectors.

 

“Why One Health
The One Health approach seeks to improve the health and wellbeing for humans, animals and the environment through innovative, intersectoral, and interprogrammatic development. One Health not only implies involvement of different sciences, but is also an approach which encourages coordination, communication, data sharing and joint efforts between the involved parties. In many countries, this requires development of new ways of handling challenges such as food security and safety, emerging and endemic zoonotic diseases, antimicrobial and drug resistance, climate change and different types of enivronmental pollutants. Demark has a long tradition of using One Health approaches and is among the world leading in pursuing good solutions to serval of these challenges. Therefore the collaboration between the two universities offers an outstanding environment for the One Health Summer Course.

National Institute for Animal Agriculture Annual Conference April 4-6, 2016 - Kansas City, Mo (USA)

 

 Food System Biosecurity Featured at NIAA Annual Conference, Species by Species

 

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.“I’ve been impressed every year with the NIAA Annual Conference themes and how they are presented,” says Paul Rodgers, Deputy Director of Policy at the American Sheep Industry Association. “The General Sessions give a broad prospective of the year’s theme, and the special Sessions set aside for individual species really let you dig into the topic and its impact on your own area of the industry.” NIAA member Rodgers serves as a co-chair, along with Ron Miller, Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, for the NIAA Small Ruminant Committee and its session at this year’s NIAA Annual Conference to be held in April in Kansas City, Mo.

 

Each year, the National Institute for Animal Agriculture chooses a theme for its Annual Conference from the most important and trending topics impacting species across the animal agriculture industry. The 2016 theme "From Farm to Table – Food System Biosecurity for Animal Agriculture" will focus on identifying risks, challenges and solutions of animal disease epidemics at a time when both the swine and poultry industries are still recovering from much-publicized and economically damaging disease outbreaks.

 

Rodgers says the Small Ruminant Session speakers will offer a different perspective on how biosecurity will impact Small Ruminants and animal agriculture as a whole.  “We don’t necessarily share all the same diseases as swine and poultry, but we can all benefit from what they have been learning about transportation and biosecurity.”

 

Dr. Glynn Tonsor, Associate Professor, Department of Agricultural Economics, Kansas State University, will be addressing the economic risk of animal disease spread and the investment into biosecurity. Tonsor will approach the subject from the regulatory side of food safety and animal health, as well as the practices, choices and incentives which drive decision making on biosecurity.

 

Integrity of Risk Assessment Science Underlying USDA Policy” is the title of Dr. Mark Thurmond’s presentation to the Small Ruminant Session.  Thurmond is Professor Emeritus at the Department of Medicine & Epidemiology, School of Veterinary Medicine, at University of California, Davis. He will look at the difference between qualitative and quantitative risk assessment in risk modeling, and speak to the process of putting a numerical values on risk.

 

Dr. Linda Detweiler, Clinical Professor, Department of Pathobiology & Population Medicine, College of Veterinary Medicine, at Mississippi State University, will present on the subject of “Emergency Response Preparedness: Considerations for the Small Ruminant Industry.” She will focus on diseases more specific to the Small Ruminant industry.

 

Biosecurity, says Rodgers, is relevant to all of animal agriculture. It goes hand in hand with animal care, food security and the economic components of loss. In addition, Rodgers says biosecurity is very important to the Small Ruminant industry both at home and as it relates to trade. The Small Ruminant industry in the US may not be as large as in some other countries, but it is still a very important one. Sheep and goats are a major source of red meat and natural fibers around the world. “On both sides, import and export,” says Rodgers, “meeting safety regulations and having secure processes in place can impact whether or not animals are considered valuable and influence the marketplace.”

 

The NIAA Annual Conference will be held April 4-6, 2016 at the Downtown Marriott in Kansas City, Mo. and will provide speakers and presentations for twelve separate agendas for Species Committees and Issues Council meetings within the Conference along with the General Sessions, pre-Conference tour, and an additional special BVD Forum following the Conference on April 7th.

U.S. One Health Commission Sponsors Important One Health Webinar – Wednesdays, July 6, 2016 and July 13, 2016 at 11am EDT

 

Webinar: One Health and the Politics of Antibiotic Resistance (Part 1 of 2)

Title

 

One Health and the Politics of Antibiotic Resistance (Part 1 of 2)

 

Overview: 
The rise of antibiotic resistant bacteria has created a crisis in medicine and veterinary medicine. The use of antibiotics as growth promoting agents in livestock has been a highly political issue. Europe approved avoparcin, a growth-promoting antibiotic, in the 1970’s. Its widespread use led to the rise of vancomycin resistant Enterococcus faecium (VRE). In contrast, the US has requested that its livestock producers voluntarily stop using antibiotic growth promoting agents. Using a One Health approach by integrating the perspectives of medicine/public health and veterinary medicine/agriculture, this presentation briefly compares and contrasts the EU versus the US experience regarding antibiotic use, antibiotic resistance, and livestock production. 

Learning Objectives: 
1. Understand the history behind low dose antibiotic use in agriculture. 
2. Understand how the rise of vancomycin resistant Enterococcus faecium (VRE) drove public policy in
Europe
3. Understand the different policy approaches in Europe and the U.S. regarding avoparcin, a growth-promoting antibiotic used extensively in pork production, and how they impacted VRE epidemiology. 
4. Understand how genomics can play a crucial role in antimicrobial resistance surveillance.

Antimicrobial Resistance in the Environment (Part 2 of 2)

 

07/13/2016 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM  EDT

 

Title: Antimicrobial Resistance in the Environment (Part 2 of 2)

 

Overview: 
This presentation will discuss findings of widespread antibiotic resistance in the environment. Massive amounts of human and animal waste applied to agricultural fields alter the global “resistome.” Wildlife never exposed to antibiotics harbor antibiotic resistant bacteria in their feces. The Human Microbiome project has found that microbial cells outnumber human cells by an estimated 10-fold, fundamentally changing our perceptions about health and disease. Taken together, the findings of antibiotic resistance in external and internal environments suggest that human antibiotic use has altered global microbial populations in ways that we do not fully understand. We are fast approaching a post antibiotic era. This presents challenges and opportunities and will require a One Health approach to succeed. 

Learning Objectives: 
1. Understand the 21st century challenges posed by the growing human population and its increasing demands for terrestrial and aquatic animal proteins. 
2. Develop familiarity with metagenomics and “The Global Resistome.” 
3. Understand how open defecation jeopardizes human, animal, and environmental health. 
4. Understand how application of manure to agricultural fields alters the global “resistome” and harms global health.

General presentation

General presentation of the conference

Organising this One Health Inter-Regional European Conference comes as a natural consequence of the momentum that the One Health concept has gathered for the last couple of years. Romania is truly honoured to be part of the One Health movement and firmly believes that due to its half of century experience in comparative medicine and not only, will have a positive impact on the One Health trajectory.

We invite all professions linked to One Health to attend this Conference, because One Health is best defined with the phrase “It’s all connected!”

The conference will be organised under the auspices of the Federation of European Academies of Medicine (FEAM) by close collaboration of the Romanian Academy of Medical Sciences and the One Health New Medical Concept Association in Romania.

Get ready for the 10th World Rabies Day, September 28th

September 28th, 2016 will be the 10th annual World Rabies Day. There are several exciting plans in the pipeline for this milestone in the event’s history and – of course - we look forward to hearing your plans too. 

Theme
As you may know, one of the outcomes from the Global Meeting in December was a target of 2030 for the elimination of human deaths from canine rabies (a goal that will save the lives of countless animals too). Building on this outcome, the theme for World Rabies Day 2016 is
Rabies: Educate. Vaccinate. Eliminate.

Resources
You can find free downloadable logos in multiple languages and branding (like the image at the top of this email) for your documents and materials here

There are ideas, checklists and guidelines to organising an event here

And improving knowledge either to support your event or as part of your event has never been so easy with our free online courses, available here

 

 

Rounded Rectangle: World Rabies Day 2016 - Event Resources

A new way to register
Registering an activity takes five minutes and multiplies the impact of what you’re doing by making sure people outside your immediate network know about it.

As previously, you can register on our website here

Or - new for 2016 – you can register by creating a Facebook event. (Instructions on how to create a Facebook event are here - you'll need a Facebook account to do this.)
If you opt to register via Facebook please make sure you

1.                 invite @Global Alliance for Rabies Control to your event (so Facebook notify us and we can include your event in the total number of events), and

 

2.                 tag the event #WorldRabiesDay (so other people can find you and to build momentum behind the hashtag).

We will then register the event on our website and send you the link to your event page. This process aims to make sure all events are accounted for and shown on the event map (and only shown once!).

Questions?
Regrettably, we cannot financially support individual events, but we are here to offer guidance, suggestions and connections where we can, so please get in touch if you have any questions. 

Stay tuned...
As I mentioned in the opening paragraph, there is more in the pipeline and we will be in touch soon with updates. We look forward to sharing them with you - and we look forward to sharing your World Rabies Day events with the world.

Let's keep pushing for elimination by 2030 by making #WorldRabiesDay 2016 the best so far.

Warm regards,
Liz Davidson

Webinar - Making One Health Operational – the One Health Systems Mapping and Analysis Resource ToolkitTM

 

Date & Time

 

Monday, December 12, 2016 at 12:00 - 1:30 pm ET

 

Presenter

 

Dr. Tracey Dutcher, DVM, MS, DACVPM, USDA APHIS One Health Coordination Center

Dr. Tracey Dutcher is part of a team coordinating the animal health component of One Health within the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service.   Prior to joining USDA, Tracey spent 7 years as an epidemiologist in Federal and state public health agencies (CDC, Indian Health Service and the Alaska Department of Health and Human Services), working across the spectrum from outbreak investigation and response to policy development.  Tracey specializes in facilitating the development of innovative partnerships with Federal Agencies, academia, and industry to increase efficiency and effectiveness of managing complex health threats through cross-disciplinary collaboration.  Her current priorities include working with academic partners to build and apply practical tools that enable an ‘operational’ approach to working across organizational and disciplinary lines.  Dr. Dutcher is an alumnus of the CDC Epidemic Intelligence Service, and a diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Preventive Medicine. 

 

Description

 

Over the last decade, the One Health approach has gained support as a valuable way to address complex issues at the interface of humans, animals, and the environment.  Moving from theory to application is more challenging, though, and experts within each sector are eager for practical tools that enable an ‘operational’ approach to working across agency and disciplinary lines.
The One Health Systems Mapping and Analysis Resource Toolkit (OH-SMART) was co-developed by the University of Minnesota and the U.S. Department of Agriculture to meet this need.  Dr. Dutcher will provide an overview of the OH SMART
TM toolkit and describe outcomes from recent applications including during a workshop at the ISDS annual meeting.

Dr. Jennie Lane is an Animal Health and Livelihoods Technical Advisor for Land O'Lakes International Development.  She recently relocated to Washington DC after working for a year in Malawi with a USAID funded Livestock for Resilience.  Jennie's current research focuses on better understanding the pathways of impact livestock transfer programs have on food security and nutrition at the household level, and the role of financial services in livestock development programming.   

A native of upstate New York, Jennie graduated from Michigan State University, College of Veterinary Medicine in 2007 and spent six years practicing equine and small animal medicine in Pennsylvania and Delaware. Her work with working equines as a veterinarian in developing countries around the world, including the Dominican Republic, India, Peru, Mexico, Nicaragua, Montserrat, and Costa Rica, inspired her interest in better understanding the relationships between livestock health, livelihoods, and human health and nutrition. In May 2014, she received a Master of Public Health (MPH) degree with a global health concentration from the University of California, Berkeley. Her MPH research investigated the relationships between working equine health and human health and livelihoods in Nicaragua. Jennie is particularly interested in sustainable and collaborative interventions to improve livelihoods of the world's poorest small holder farmers, and has a special love for working equines (horses, donkeys and mules).  In her free time, you can find Jennie unplugged in the wilderness, on a bicycle or sailing.
