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.

Insight for Changing World: GEO Week 2017 - October 23-27, 2017 - Friday, September 01, 2017

https://www.earthobservations.org/images/geo14/geoweek2017_banner2.jpg

 

The Group on Earth Observations (GEO) Health Community of Practice will be uniting to participate and contribute to the GEO Week 2017 proceedings, held at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington D.C., from October 23–27, 2017. Using the theme, “Insight for a Changing World,” GEO Week 2017 will offer the GEO-XIV Plenary and side events and exhibitions, highlighting scientific presentations and audience discussions related to enhancing the integration of Earth observations into real-time scientific applications of education, practice, and research.

The GEO Health Community of Practice Meeting will be held from 1PM to 5PM on Tuesday, October 24, 2017, in Room Meridian C. This Side Event will focus on formal presentations and open audience discussions about how Earth observations are contributing to the following GEO Work Programme focus areas: 1) a Harmful Algal Bloom Early Warning System, 2) Integrating Methods for Air Quality and Health Data, 3) a Global Observing System for Mercury and Persistent Pollutants, and 4) Earth Observations for Health. In particular, this event will provide:

 

  • An overview of the “One Health” approach as the interface of human, animal, and environmental health risks

  • Emphasis on how Earth observation analysis can influence knowledge translation for a range of applications

  • Presentation of case studies that support transdisciplinary collaborations and intersect with GEO Work Programme activities

  • Open dialogue to identify challenges and future steps toward enhanced integration of Earth observations into science education, practice, and research

Chronic Pain in Dogs and Cats Workshop - Hosted by National Institutes of Health (NIH) on Nov. 29-30, 2017 - Wednesday, January 06, 2016

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!
