Postponement message RE: Updated Status for A One Health Approach to Antimicrobial Resistance: Confronting the Resistome in Humans, Animals, and the Environment - Tuesday, March 10, 2020

NIH: National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Logo 

 Important postponement message:

Updated Status for A One Health Approach to Antimicrobial Resistance: Confronting the Resistome in Humans, Animals, and the Environment. Please make a note of it on your calendar. Additional details are below:

After careful consideration, the NIH and NIAID has made the difficult decision to postpone the One Health Approach to Antimicrobial Resistance meeting http://www.cvent.com/d/3hqrmj scheduled in Rockville MD next week. After review of the public health data about the coronavirus and its impact on travel , it was determined that it would be an unacceptable risk to hold the conference and related activities at this time. Instead, this meeting is postponed until July 1 and 2, 2020.

We regret having to make this decision but determined we must prioritize the health and safety of our conference attendees. This news comes as many other postponements and cancellations of events due to the coronavirus.

We recognize that the new data, exchange of information, and opportunities for collaboration offered by this conference are highly valued by the One Health community. Information on the rescheduled program will be sent by email once it is available. In the meantime, registrants should note the following:

Abstracts that were scheduled to be presented as posters or short talks at the conference will not be published. Abstract authors are encouraged to submit an updated abstract once the rescheduled conference has been confirmed and abstract submission opens.

Registrants who have questions can contact Dr. Parker at tina.parker@nih.gov

The idea would include medical and health professionals, veterinarians, public health officials and doctors “all singing from the same hymnal. We don’t want the CDC coming in with one idea and Health & Human Services with another. So ‘one health’ would help with all that and we’re pushing that legislation right now.”

How to Prepare for the Coronavirus

REPEAT “Wash your hands. Keep a good supply of essential medicines. Get a flu shot. Experts offer practical tips on how to get ready for a possible outbreak.”

 

Wash your hands frequently...

 

“... Wash your hands frequently, said Dr. Trish Perl, an infectious disease specialist at UT Southwestern Medical Center. “It’s not super sexy but it works,” she said. With SARS, also a coronavirus, but one that is much deadlier, hand washing reduced the risk of transmission by 30 to 50 percent, she said. ...”  https://www.nytimes.com/2020/02/25/health/prepare-for-coronavirus.html?action=click&module=Well&pgtype=Homepage&section=Health 

 

 

GLOBAL PUBLIC HEALTH...Big Picture: REPEAT   “One Health implementation will help protect and/or save untold millions of lives in our generation and for those to come.”  What is One Health: ““One Health is the collaborative efforts of multiple disciplines working locally, nationally, and globally to attain optimal health for people, animals, plants and our environment.”

 

REPEAT Some current and past global public health experts who support/advocate – supported/advocated for a “One Health” approach:

April 22, 2007 Dr. D. A. Henderson, legendary leader of the worldwide smallpox eradication program.

I thank you for your email and congratulate you and your colleagues in promoting the "One Medicine" concept. It is an initiative that is long overdue but, at the same time, I don't personally identify dramatic solutions that are apt to change the landscape in the short term. I would note that when one has had the good fortune to have enjoyed the tutelage of Jim Steele during my tenure at CDC and periodically ever since, as a friend, the one medicine concept becomes well engrained. Indeed, when I came to Hopkins as Dean in 1977, I cast about to determine how we might link up with a veterinary school for research and educational purposes. Unfortunately, geography was simply too great a hurdle to overcome.

Bottom line: I would be more than happy to do whatever I could in support of your efforts.

Dr. Peter Rabinowitz

Speaker: Dr. Peter Rabinowitz
Bio

Peter Rabinowitz is professor of Environmental & Occupational Health Sciences, and director of the UW Center for One Health Research. The center explores linkages between human, animal and environmental health in a "One Health" paradigm, including: zoonotic infectious diseases at the human-animal interface, animals as "sentinels" of environmental health hazards and clinical collaboration between human health care providers and veterinarians in a species-spanning approach.

He has been a visiting scientist at the Global Influenza Program of the World Health Organization and in the Animal Health Division of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization where he researched zoonotic diseases. He is the co-editor, with Lisa Conti, DVM, MPH, of the clinical manual Human Animal Medicine: Zoonoses, Toxicants and Shared Health Risks. Dr. Rabinowitz received his MD degree from the University of Washington and his MPH from Yale University.
