Dr. Sander will discuss Pharmaceuticals in Water: A Global Perspective

 

More upcoming One Health events and previous recordings are also listed on our website here.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dr. Will Sander will discuss pharmaceuticals in water from a global perspective. Pharmaceuticals do not just have intended effects as most get into the water system and can have unintended consequences on the environment, animals, and potentially people. As part of his time at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Will performed independent research looking at pharmaceutical occurrence around the world and policies and strategies from a global perspective.

 

Currently, Will is a veterinary specialist government contractor with Booz Allen Hamilton in Washington, DC supporting the Cooperative Biological Engagement Program (CBEP) within the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), part of the Department of Defense. His work centers on supporting CBEP to identify gaps in and bolster support for biosurveillance for human and animal health systems around the world. He also is a volunteer wildlife veterinarian at City Wildlife, Washington D.C.'s only wildlife rehabilitation center. Prior to Booz Allen Hamilton, he was an American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Science and Technology Policy Fellow at U.S. EPA, Office of Water/Office of Science and Technology looking at potential human health impacts from pharmaceuticals in water. Dr. Sander received his Bachelor of Arts in Biology at Colby College, his DVM from University of Wisconsin-Madison and his MPH in Global Health from Yale University. He's a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Preventive Medicine. Will directs the One Health Academy in Washington, D.C. and is the AVMA House of Delegates (HOD) alternate for DCVMA.

Important “One Health” 21st century History:

June 2007- American Medical Association Meeting during “One Health” resolution testimony.  Historic resolution subsequently adopted.

Left to right: Ronald M. Davis, MD, President AMA, Roger K. Mahr, DVM, President, American Veterinary Medical Association and Laura H. Kahn, MD, MPH, MPP of Princeton University.

The AMA “One Health” resolution was originally drafted by Dr. Kahn under Dr. Davis’s guidance. Thomas P. Monath, MD and Bruce Kaplan, DVM assisted.  The historic “One Health” liaison between AVMA and AMA [in effect today] was fostered by collaboration between Drs. Mahr and Davis.

The OIE and the WVA jointly celebrate World Veterinary Day 2017

 

On World Veterinary Day, the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) and the World Veterinary Association (WVA) pay tribute to the crucial role played by veterinarians in the fight against antimicrobial resistance. This year, the event focuses on the action the profession can take to preserve the efficacy of antimicrobial treatments, which are essential resources to protect human health as well as animal health and welfare. Throughout the day, and all around the world, the many initiatives led by veterinarians to raise awareness on this essential issue in their countries will come under the spotlight.

 

THEME 2017

 

ANTIMICROBIAL RESISTANCE - FROM AWARENESS TO ACTION

 

 

 

Paris/Brussels, 29 April 2017 – The availability and use of antimicrobial drugs has transformed the practice of human and animal medicine. Infections that were once lethal are now treatable, and the use of antimicrobial agents has advanced global health as well as animal health, which is a key component of animal welfare, food security and safety.

 

Safeguarding the efficacy of these life-saving medications, as well as their availability and effectiveness for both human and veterinary use, is essential to preserve our future. However, overuse and misuse of these drugs in humans, animals and plants sectors has dramatically accelerated the emergence of resistance to antimicrobials.

 

During its General Assembly in September 2016, the United Nations acknowledged thatAntmicrobial resistance reduces our ability to protect the health of animals and therefore is threatening safe and sustainable food and agriculture production". 

 

Veterinary practitioners have a key part to play in the fight against antimicrobial resistance: they are the direct interlocutors of paraprofessionals as well as farmers and animal owners, and can trigger a sustainable change in behaviour towards a responsible and prudent antimicrobial use.

 

Through their role in supervising the use of antimicrobials, offering professional advice to farmers and animal owners and collaborating with the human health sector, veterinarians have a key role to play in combatting the growing threat of antimicrobial resistance. They are at the forefront to promote sound animal husbandry hygiene methods and the implementation of accurate vaccination strategies” highlights Dr Monique Eloit, OIE Director General. “They have the responsibility to raise awareness among farmers and animal owners on the prudent use of antibiotics and these actions are supported worldwide by the OIE Global Strategy against antimicrobial resistance”. 

 

 

WVA President Dr René Carlson says: The availability and use of antimicrobials are essential to ensure the good health and welfare of animals as well as people. After years of promoting awareness about the dangers of misusing antimicrobials, it is time we recognise the actions organisations around the world are taking to promote the responsible use of antimicrobials in both animals and people to prevent further development of antimicrobial resistance and the proper disposal of antimicrobials to protect our environment, such as our waterways and oceans. This is a One Health issue for which all health care providers, both human and veterinary, must take personal responsibility”.

 

 

 

PARTICIPATE IN THE WORLD VETERINARY DAY AWARD 2017!

 

Spread the word on the activities which you held at this occasion or during the year and take the chance to win the World Veterinary Day Award!

 

The competition is open to all WVA member associations, alone, or in cooperation with any other selected body. The winner will be announced at the Opening Ceremony of the OIE 85th General Session on 21 May 2017 (Paris, France) and the award will be presented to the winner during the World Veterinary Congress 2017 from 27th -31st August 2017 (Incheon, Rep. of Korea).

You are kindly invited to participate in ESWI’s colloquium on influenza preventing policies for children. The event will gather key opinion leaders in paediatrics, family medicine, public health policy, regulatory affairs and academic influenza research.
 
ESWI organizes this scientific symposium in response to the observation that – despite WHO’s recommendations to routinely vaccinate young children against influenza – only five EU Member States have actually included this target group in their influenza vaccination programmes.
 
Through various expert lectures and debates, the colloquium aims to:
  • explore the variety of influenza vaccination programmes for children in the EU
  • address possible hurdles for childhood vaccination
  • spark the scientific debate on concerted, well-balanced influenza preventing policies for children in Europe.
Registration
Participation in the colloquium is free of charge, but places are limited. Register now to secure your seat.

The Confluence of Science, Policy, Politics, and the Multisectoral Approach to Zoonotic Disease


 

 

Overview

 

Conversations and news on how science and scientists influence policy and decision-making has increased in the past few months, and the challenges faced between science, policy, and politics is not new. In the fields of science (epidemiology, medicine, public health, animal health, and food safety among others), decision-making and policy informed by science is imperative and yet we have all experienced how other factors may alter those decisions and policy development.

 

During the call, clinicians will learn how specific examples of zoonotic disease responses have highlighted the contribution of science, policy, and politics in successful and some not so successful outcomes.

 

Date: Thursday, June 15, 2017

Presenter:

Jonathan Epstein, DVM, MPH, PhD EcoHealth Alliance

 

Overview:

Zoonotic viruses-- represent an important group of pathogens that are responsible for a growing number of significant epidemics. SARS coronavirus, Ebola, Nipah virus, avian influenza, and perhaps most importantly, HIV, are all recently emergent zoonotic viruses that originated in wild animal populations and have caused significant morbidity and mortality in human, and in some cases, animal populations. Zoonotic viruses can have profound health and economic impacts globally, even when occurring in relatively isolated regions, thereby making them a significant challenge for the global health community. The majority of viral pandemics are triggered by human activities such as deforestation, agricultural expansion and intensification, urbanization, hunting, travel, and wildlife trade. To be able to minimize the impact of emerging viral zoonoses requires an understanding of the viral diversity within key wildlife reservoirs, the types of human behaviors that increase exposure to an infection with zoonotic viruses, and the ability to rapidly identify the etiologic agent behind clusters of human or domestic animal disease so that effective interventions can be implemented. During COCA Call, participants will gain a broad understanding of how spillover and disease emergence occurs. We will also discuss efforts that are currently underway to enhance the global community's capacity to detect and respond to the emergence of novel zoonoses.  

 

Objectives:

At the conclusion of the session, the participant will be able to accomplish the following:

 

  • Describe how human activities drive zoonotic disease emergence-including examples of human behaviors that promote increased contact with wildlife
  • Describe key elements of an ecological study of zoonotic viruses
  • Explain how Nipah virus and Ebola emerged and why we continue to see outbreaks
  • Explain 'One Health' and how it is used in research and response to zoonotic diseases
  • Explain why wildlife surveillance is important for protecting human and livestock health

Princeton Professor To Give Environmental Lecture At MCCC

 

WEST WINDSOR, NJ — A Princeton University professor, [physician] and public health expert will address the balance between feeding a growing world population and the consequences during a lecture at Mercer County Community College on Oct. 17. Consequences include damage to the environment and emerging diseases, according to a release from the college announcing the event.

 

“Meat, Monkeys, and Mosquitos: A One Health Perspective to Emerging Diseases” will be the subject of a lecture by Princeton University Professor Dr. Laura Kahn at noon on Tuesday, Oct. 17 in the Communications Building, Room 109.

 

Her talk is part of MCCC’s fall 2017 Distinguished Lecture Series at the West Windsor Campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road. The lecture is free and open to the public.

 

In her lecture, Kahn acknowledges that agriculture is the foundation of civilization, as it was the prevention of hunger and food security that enabled the growth of cities, and subsequently nations, along with the science and technology that has given rise to population growth.

 

However, the expansion of agriculture has given rise to deforestation, environmental destruction, and emerging diseases. She contends that one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century will be to meet the world’s food demands while ensuring global health and sustainability.

 

Kahn will discuss the “one health” concept, which asserts that human, animal, and environmental health are linked, and serves as a framework to analyze the interrelationship between food security, the environment, and emerging diseases.

 

Kahn received a B.S. in Nursing from UCLA, an M.D. from Mt. Sinai School of Medicine, a Master of Public Health from Columbia University, and a Master of Public Policy from Princeton University.

 

For more information on MCCC’s Distinguished Lecture Series, call 609-570-3324 or visit www.mccc.edu/events.
