Praecipio International Team Endorses One Health

 In a June 30, 2010 message to the One Health Initiative website team, *physician director and co-founder of Praecipio International      and, James M. Wilson V, MD endorsed One Health and wrote:


One Health has the full support of our team at Praecipio and an open offer to its entire community for access to The Praedico social network (it's free).  The Praedico is where we share analytic insight and experience, share live event information, and (most importantly) get to know each other socially as an online community of interest.  It's free with no commercial interests.  We stood it up to enable deeper conversation to occur among those not necessarily comfortable with attribution.  It was created two days ago, the result of many social experiments using other social networking platforms such as Google groups and LinkedIn.  We have found Ning to work simply enough and encourage everyone in One Health to join.”  

 “Praecipio International is a nonprofit corporation dedicated to providing information on disruption caused by infectious disease events in order to promote well-informed social and economic decisions.  Praecipio International works to enhance and improve international public health and security against biological threats by stimulating collaboration within and offering education to the international, multi-disciplinary humanitarian community.  Praecipio International created the first comprehensive, operational infectious disease forecasting and early warning center in the world, the Haiti Epidemic Advisory System (HEAS).  Praecipio's team members provided warning of unusual respiratory disease in Mexico in April 2009 to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization, which was later recognized to be the 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic.”
