Massachusetts Veterinary Medical Association (MVMA) 2014 Winter Continuing   Education Conference

 

 

 

Join us for the MVMA’s Winter CE Conference. Sessions include  “Zoobiquity: How Veterinarians will Transform Human Medicine _with physician Dr. Barbara Natterson-Horowitz, M.D., Small Animal Cardiology with Dr. Barret Bulmer, D.V.M., M.S., D.A.C.V.I.M.

 

 

 

Track 2

Zoobiquity: How Veterinarians Will Transform Human Medicine (6 CE)

 

Barbara Natterson-Horowitz, M.D. -  A longstanding physician One Health Supporter http://www.onehealthinitiative.com/supporters.php

 

“Animals and people get the same diseases, yet physicians and veterinarians rarely consult one another. Zoobiquity explores how animal and human commonality can be used to diagnose, treat, and heal patients of all species. Drawing on the latest in medical and veterinary science—as well as evolutionary and molecular biology—we propose an integrated, interdisciplinary approach to physical and behavioral health in humans and non-human animals. This talk will explore animal-human correlates in cancer, heart disease, obesity and infection as well as psychiatric conditions including self-injury, compulsive grooming, sexual dysfunction, and substance-seeking. Dr. Natterson-Horowitz challenges the human medical community to recognize comparative medicine as translational science, bringing knowledge from veterinary and evolutionary medicine to the human bedside.”

Penn Vet to Host Symposium on Microbes in Health and Disease 

 

Featuring Acclaimed Science Writer Carl Zimmer - Wednesday, October 15, 2014 from 6-7:30pm

 

Inn at Penn - 3600 Sansom St., Philadelphia, PA (USA)

 

Contacts:
Ashley Berke, Director of Communications, 215-898-1475/berke@vet.upenn.edu

 

John Donges, Communications Coordinator, 215-898-4234/jdonges@vet.upenn.edu

 

For Immediate Release

 

 [September 12, 2014; Philadelphia, PA] – From a major Ebola outbreak in West Africa to MERS in Saudi Arabia to polio in Syria to chikungunya in the Caribbean, the news these days is full of stories about viruses. The Microbial Communities in Health and Disease symposium, sponsored by Penn Vet, in collaboration with the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine and School of Arts & Sciences, will 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.

 

 The timely, two-day symposium will begin with a special public event – a discussion with acclaimed science writer Carl Zimmer on Wednesday, October 15, 2014 from 6-7:30pm at the Inn at Penn (3600 Sansom St., Philadelphia). Presentations for the scientific community will take place at Penn Vet’s Hill Pavilion (380 S. University Ave., Philadelphia) on Thursday, October 16, 2014. Admission is FREE, but registration is required at www.vet.upenn.edu/carlzimmer (for the 10/15 event) and http://www.vet.upenn.edu/chmisymposium (for the 10/16 presentations).

 

 Author and New York Times columnist Carl Zimmer will discuss “A Planet of Viruses: How Humans Can Live Safely on a Viral World.” One of the most frightening things about viruses is how they emerge without warning, vanish mysteriously, and then return again even more dangerous than before. Zimmer will discuss how scientists are uncovering the hidden rules by which new viruses evolve and spread. To do so, they’re exploring the networks of connections that join human societies together and also link our species to other animals with which we share the planet—and with which we can share diseases.

 

 On October 16, eight prominent scientists will discuss cutting-edge work investigating how microbes not only cause disease, but also how “good bugs” promote health. Speakers include:

 

  • Janelle Ayres, PhD, Nomis Foundation Laboratories, Salk Institute for Biological Studies
  • Yasmine Belkaid, PhD, Chief, Mucosal Immunology Section, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases
  • Claire Fraser, PhD, Director, Institute for Genome Sciences, University of Maryland School of Medicine
  • Jack Gilbert, PhD, Department of Ecology & Evolution, University of Chicago
  • Sergio Lira, MD, PhD, Director, Immunology Institute, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai
  • Martin F. Polz, PhD, Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
  • John Rawls, PhD, Department of Molecular Genetics & Microbiology, Duke University Medical Center
  • Ramnik Xavier, MD, PhD, Director, Center for the Study of Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Massachusetts General Hospital 

 

This event is made possible in part by the Provost Interdisciplinary Seminar Fund Award and exemplifies the One Health Initiative, which is dedicated to improving the lives of all species through the integration of human medicine, veterinary medicine, and environmental science.

 

 The symposium is spearheaded by Penn Vet’s Center for Host-Microbial Interactions. The Center funded five pilot projects last year to explore the intersection of microbes and disease in order to benefit both animal and human health. The second round of funded projects will be announced next month. For more information, visit www.vet.upenn.edu/chmi.

One Health: Integrating the Veterinarian Scientist into the Biomedical Research Enterprise

 

                   National Institutes of Health (NIH)

 

                   Bethesda, Maryland (USA)

 

                   April 7-8, 2015

 

One Health is an integrative effort of multiple disciplines working together to attain optimal health for people, animals, and the environment. This Conference will bring together veterinarians, clinicians, and basic researchers with the aim of providing information and advice on how basic and applied biomedical research—utilizing the concept of One Health—can advance the National Institutes of Health (NIH) human health and disease mission. Participants will discuss case studies in which multidisciplinary teams combine investigations using both animal and human subjects to study various conditions, including infectious disease, cancer, and neurological disease. Training programs that bring together investigators from diverse disciplines, including veterinary science, also play a critical role in advancing the One Health concept. Participants will discuss examples of training programs that use the One Health strategy and will identify best practices for training veterinarian scientists to be part of interdisciplinary biomedical research teams. Based on these various case studies and roundtable discussions, participants and attendees will provide input on how the NIH might further its mission by incorporating the One Health concept into research and training programs. The Office of Research Infrastructure Programs (ORIP), within the Division of Program Coordination, Planning, and Strategic Initiatives in the Office of the NIH Director, is pleased to sponsor this conference. ORIP funds animal-based resources and research projects and plays a central role at the NIH in training veterinarian scientists (see http://dpcpsi.nih.gov/orip/index). Therefore, ORIP seeks advice regarding future directions for its programs, including alignment with recommendations from the 2014 NIH Physician-Scientist Workforce Working Group Report (http://report.nih.gov/workforce/psw/index.aspx) and initiatives being planned by veterinary schools to partner with NIH-funded Clinical and Translational Science Centers and other resources.

One Health is a concept that integrates human, animal, and environmental health.  Recognizing that the health of each part of this triad is inextricably linked to the others, proponents include the American Medical Association, American Veterinary Medical Association, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Environmental Health Association. Complex health-related issues like climate change, food production, chemical resistance, disease transmission, environmental contamination, land use, and regulatory decisions have dire consequences that require effective communication among experts in multiple disciplines, policymakers, and the lay public. This presentation is intended to enhance awareness of One Health and to inspire efforts toward improving interdisciplinary communication and collaboration that are essential as we respond to local, national and global health challenges.

What is One Health?

With rapid transportation of people, animals, and food, now the norm in many world economies, we are facing new complex zoonotic diseases and food safety problems on a scale never seen before. To respond to and control these problems, we will need new approaches. One Health, an interdisciplinary approach that encompasses animal, human, and environmental health, has been embraced as a way forward by many groups of professional experts. It is a worldwide strategy for advancing health care in humans, animals and the environment through communication and collaboration between multiple disciplines with the realization that human, animal, and environmental health are all connected.

The Duke One Health team serves as a base for the rapidly expanding Duke research portfolio in One Health, as well as a hub for encouraging ongoing campus-wide research activities in this field. Duke has an expansive academic and clinical network both domestically and abroad. This team provides a strong, interdisciplinary base for ongoing One Health activities across this network.

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.

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.

 

This event is part of the University of Pennsylvania’s ongoing efforts in support of the One Health Initiative, which is dedicated to improving the lives of all species through the integration of human medicine, veterinary medicine, and environmental science.

 

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.

“One Health” is the integrated three-part paradigm for infectious diseases that “spillover” from animals to humans and can cause epidemics: (1) human health, (2) animal health, and (3) ecohealth.

The Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA) was launched in 2014 by the United States government (White House, Department of Health and Human Services, Department of State, USDA, and others), the WHO D-G Dr. Margaret Chan and 28 nations, World Animal Health organizations OIE/FAO, and others to address global infectious disease threats, e.g., MERS, Ebola, pandemic influenza.

 

This symposium will explore the relationship between One Health and the GHSA. 

Dean Stephen Ray Mitchell, MD, MBA, Dean for Medical Education at Georgetown University School of Medicine, will provide the welcoming remarks and Daniel Lucey, MD, MPH, Adjunct Professor, Georgetown University Medical Center, School of Foreign Service, and Georgetown Law, and Senior Scholar, O'Neill Institute, will moderate the symposium.  The event is sponsored by Georgetown University Medical Center's Department of Microbiology and Immunology.

The symposium is open to the Georgetown University community and the public.

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. For registration information go to NIAA's website, www.animalagriculture.org

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.

One Health Leadership Experience

 

Whether you plan to be a veterinarian, public health nurse, environmental specialist or a physician, you will want to play an integral role in developing One Health — the future of global health care.

 

One Health is a global initiative that encourages collaboration among all health disciplines with the goal of attaining optimal health for people, animals and the environment.

 

This annual three-day workshop will introduce you to the concept of One Health. Throughout the weekend, you will interact with high-calibre One Health leaders from across North America. Group discussions and social events also give you time to meet other students from your own college as well as from other U of S colleges and schools.

 

The 2016 U of S One Health Leadership Experience will be held from Friday, Aug. 26, to Sunday, Aug. 28, in Saskatoon, Sask.
