Webinar ID: 760 517 455

 

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.

Gubernatorial Proclamation Signing [Iowa (USA) One Health Month!] – November 22, 2017

 

On behalf of the Iowa One Health committee of Iowa, we'd like to invite you to attend a Proclamation signing by Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds declaring the month of November as Iowa One Health Month!

 

The Proclamation signing will take place on Wednesday, November 22, 2017 at 11:30am in the Governor's formal office at the Iowa State Capitol in Des Moines. Please arrive by 11:15am. Anyone is welcome to attend and free parking (map) is available around the Capitol Complex.

 

The purpose of this Proclamation is to support, strengthen and expand One Health-related efforts in Iowa, and to increase awareness of One Health principles to improve human health, veterinary health, agriculture, and land stewardship. 

 

One Health is defined as the collaborative effort of multiple health and social science professions, together with their related disciplines and institutions – working locally, nationally, and globally – to attain optimal health for people, domestic animals, wildlife, and our environment. To learn more about the Iowa One Health Conference, visit here https://www.public-health.uiowa.edu/ceid/other-ceid-events/conferences/.

 

Your attendance at this Proclamation signing would help demonstrate the importance of developing solutions to many interconnected problems that impact the health of humans, animals, and the environment. 

 

We hope to see you on November 22! 

 

 

Sincerely, 

 

 

Neil Vezeau & Jake Swanson, MPH

 

General Co-Chairmen, Iowa One Health

Chronic Pain in Dogs and Cats Workshop - Hosted by National Institutes of Health (NIH) on Nov. 29-30, 2017 - Friday, June 02, 2017

Chronic Pain in Dogs and Cats Workshop - Hosted by National Institutes of Health (NIH) on Nov. 29-30, 2017

 

 

“We want to reach a large audience in hopes of promoting research and analgesic development for companion animals with translational benefit to humans.”

 

 

Please consider attending the upcoming Chronic Pain in Dogs and Cats Workshop that will be hosted by NIH on Nov. 29-30, 2017. There is no registration cost but everyone does need to register at the website. We want to reach a large audience in hopes of promoting research and analgesic development for companion animals with translational benefit to humans.

 

Despite advances, chronic pain is one of the most poorly understood and under treated medical problems facing veterinary medicine today. One of the most frustrating aspects of developing therapeutics for treating chronic pain in veterinary medicine is the lack of validated methods to measure chronic pain in different species and diseases. Similarlytranslational success has often been lacking when taking analgesics from animal models to human clinical trials. Numerous reviews have highlighted a lack of translation of basic research into new approved therapeutics for treating persistent pain in humans. The use of spontaneous painful disease in companion animals is one of the changes that could help improve translation of basic science to new therapeutics to act as a bridge between preclinical and clinical studies. The ultimate goal is to reduce failure rates in human clinical trials with resultant new therapeutics for humans and animals. For this bridge to work, we need valid outcome measures in animal spontaneous disease conditions and opportunities to share and promote knowledge.

 

We are hoping this NIH workshop will bring research, regulatory, academia, and industry together from the veterinary and human arena to tackle these challenges. 

 

Please see the brochure http://www.onehealthinitiative.com/publications/Pain%20in%20Animals%20Workshop.pdf and the www.PAW2017.com website.  Please help us spread the word by sharing the brochure and website with your colleagues.  Thank you very much!
