One Health’s ‘What,’ ‘So What’ to Animal Agriculture
Focus of NIAA’s 2010 Annual Meeting

 

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO—“One Health” is a worldwide strategy for expanding interdisciplinary collaborations and communications in all aspects of health care for humans and animals. Opening General Session speakers at the 2010 annual meeting of the National Institute for Animal Agriculture, March 15-17, in Kansas City, Mo., will zero in on the “What?” and “So What?” of the One Health concept as these two questions relate to animal agriculture.

“NIAA’s Opening General Session speakers will look at how the One Health initiative and strategies shift the focus from surveillance to intervention and prevention and how challenges need to be faced collectively rather than in individual silos and disciplines,” states Dr. Tony Forshey, co-chair of NIAA’s Annual Meeting Planning Committee. “When individuals leave the Tuesday morning Opening General Session, they will be up to speed about One Health and its implications for animal agriculture.”

 

NIAA’s lineup of Opening General Session topics and speakers include:

·       “One World, One Health: The Global Food Basket,” Dr. Corrie Brown, DVM, PhD, DACVP, University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine

·       “The Genesis of One Health: What It’s All About,” Dr. Roger Mahr, DVM, CEO, One Health Commission

·       "Past, Present and Future Veterinary Service's Roles in One Health," Dr. Joseph Annelli, One Health Coordinator, USDA/APHIS/Veterinary Services

·       “Environmental Health: How Does One Health Fit In?”, Jay Ellenberger, Deputy  Director, Environmental Protection Agency

·       “How Will One Health Impact Livestock Producers?”, Dr. Harry Snelson, DVM, American Association of Swine Veterinarians

·       “One Health in the Real World,” Dr. Billy Clay, DVM, MS, DABVT, AVMA Council on Public Health and Regulatory Veterinary Medicine, Vetta Consulting LLC

 

At the conclusion of the six Opening General Session presentations, the speakers will partake in a panel discussion and address questions from annual meeting attendees.

 

“We’re excited to have these highly qualified individuals talk about One Health so those of us involved in animal agriculture know as much as possible about this concept that has the attention of major medical organizations and health agencies and the endorsement of more than 400 prominent scientists, physicians and veterinarians worldwide,” Dr. Forshey states. “One Health is underway and gaining momentum. As such, we can either become knowledgeable and involved now or we can react to its impact on animal agriculture.”

 

Dr. Forshey adds that species-specific discussions surrounding One Health will take place during NIAA’s species-based committee meetings on Tuesday afternoon, March 16, and Wednesday, March 17. Species-based committees include Cattle, Swine, Poultry, Equine, and Sheep & Goat. Each committee meeting will have its own line-up of nationally recognized speakers and species-specific topics.

 

NIAA’s issue-based committee meetings on Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday will address Animal Care, Animal Health Emergency Management, Animal Health and International Trade, Animal Production Food Safety and Security, Emerging Diseases, and Animal Identification and Information Systems.  

 

NIAA’s species committee meetings and issue-based committee meetings are open to NIAA members and non-members.

 

NIAA’s annual meeting will take place at the Westin Crown Center in Kansas City, Mo., with a block of rooms reserved at a special nightly rate of $130/room, single or double occupancy. To receive this special rate, rooms must be reserved by Friday, Feb. 12, by calling 816-474-4400 and specifying that you are with the National Institute for Animal Agriculture.

 

A schedule of events for NIAA’s 2010 annual meeting, meeting registration, list of NIAA committees and hotel information are available at the NIAA website: www.animalagriculture.org.   Individuals are also welcome to call NIAA at (719) 538-8843.

 

The National Institute for Animal Agriculture (NIAA) is a non-profit, membership-driven organization that unites and advances animal agriculture—the beef, dairy, equine, goat, poultry, sheep and swine industries. NIAA is dedicated to programs that work towards the eradication of diseases that pose risk to the health of animals, wildlife and humans; promote a safe and wholesome food supply for our national and abroad; and promote best practices in environmental stewardship, animal health and well-being.  NIAA members represent producers, veterinarians, scientists, state and federal officials, and business executives.

Symposium to examine emerging MRSA threat - Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine - March 20, 2010 - Friday, February 12, 2010

 Symposium to examine emerging MRSA threat - Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine - March 20, 2010

Columbus, OH - On Saturday, March 20, 2010 experts in infectious diseases and on MRSA in animals will convene a day-long symposium to explore the human and animal health threats posed by this emerging health problem. Health workers are aware that Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) can be transferred from person to person; they may be less aware of the risks posed to animals by human transmission, and may not know that animals can transfer the pathogen to humans.

Experts at the symposium will present a description of this pathogen and of other Methicillin-resistant Staphylococci, as well as offer a summary of their epidemiology and their impact on humans and animals. The symposium is targeted to both human health professionals and animal health professionals. This "One Health, One Medicine" approach to studying this pathogens offers a broader understanding of the impact of the diseases in the human health setting as well as veterinary setting.

The two featured keynote speakers are Dr. Scott Weese, recognized internationally for his work on MRSA in animals, and Dr. Paul Morley, an infectious diseases control expert. Dr. Weese will provide a worldwide MRSA update; Dr. Morley will describe handling MRSA cases to decrease the risk of diseases transmission in veterinary settings.

Registration for the symposium is available at The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine Office of Veterinary Continuing Education. On-line registration requires establishing a log-in name and password. Cost for the full day meeting is $60 ($35 for students). Registration can also be mailed or faxed. A downloadable PDF of a brochure is also available. For more information and links to both methods of registration, please visit the Office of Veterinary Continuing Education web site.

One Health: From Ideas to Implementation, Rhetoric to Reality

 

Emerging zoonotic diseases, food- and water-borne diseases, and environmental change pose increasing threats to health on a global basis. Improvements are needed in our ability to detect and respond to emerging zoonotic agents, particularly those that appear suddenly and are capable of spreading over large areas. The emergence of diseases is a huge public health threat everywhere, especially with the impact of being able to travel to any point in the world in a day. Diseases do not respect borders. This session will focus on implementing One Health principles through concrete actions, in particular, via monitoring and surveillance at the human-animal-environment interface.

 Consumer’s Stake in Today’s Food Production -  Meeting Growing Production Demands with Integrity

 

NATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR ANIMAL AGRICULTURE (NIAA)

 

NIAA Annual Conference April 11-14, 2011

San Antonio, Texas

 

It is estimated that by 2050 nearly twice as much food will need to be produced to feed the world’s growing population!  With limited resources, it will be even more important that animal agriculture continues to produce food, milk and fiber in responsible and sustainable ways that meet consumers’ expectations.

 

The 2011 Annual Conference of the National Institute for Animal Agriculture will explore the growing necessity of involving consumers as stakeholders in food production.  As stakeholders, consumers need to have accurate and complete information on the many issues surrounding meat, dairy and fiber production in order to understand the importance of evolving production practices.   Areas to be explored will include the elements of a stable food supply; food security; food safety; animal agriculture’s importance in the ecosystem; and effective ways to communicate with stakeholders.

One Health: The Intersection of Human, Animal and Environmental Health
Presented by Lisa Conti, DVM, MPH, Director, Division of Environmental Health, Florida Department of Health, Tallahassee, FL

This presentation is intended to engage participants in a manner that promotes cross species and environmental factor considerations as a daily habit.  The outcomes of our communities' ability to add value to this collaboration - effectively communicating and implementing improvements - are enormous given the complexity of today's "Wicked Problems."

Dr. Conti is on the Advisory Board (Hon.) of the One Health Initiative.  The One Health concept is a worldwide strategy for expanding interdisciplinary collaborations and communications in all aspects of health care for humans, animals and the environment. The synergism achieved will advance health care for the 21st century and beyond by accelerating biomedical research discoveries, enhancing public health efficacy, expeditiously expanding the scientific knowledge base, and improving medical education and clinical care. When properly implemented, it will help protect and save untold millions of lives in our present and future generations.

Frontiers in One Health-Upcoming

October 4, 2011
1020 Valley-12:00 noon

Tony Goldberg, DVM, PhD  and  Richard Ostfeld, PhD

A paired speaking event from experts in the field of disease ecology. Dr. Tony Goldberg is a professor of epidemiology at the Univ of Wisconsin-Madison, and Dr. Rick Ostfeld is a disease ecologist from the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies. Biodiversity can protect human health by reducing the probability of human exposure to disease agents transmitted from wildlife. Human-induced environmental changes, such as habitat fragmentation, can inadvertently increase disease risk by reducing both predators and biodiversity. Understanding general mechanisms of pathogen transmission and evolution can improve the health and well-being of people and animals while conserving the rapidly changing ecosystems both share.

  Symposium to Meet Identified Need for More Information Regarding Antibiotic Use in Food Animal Production

 Colorado Springs, Colo. (October 18, 2011)—When consumers were asked in a nationwide survey to identify the Top 5 topics they want more information about related to where their food comes from , “how antibiotics are used” made their list. When farmers and ranchers were asked which Top 5 topics were most important to educate consumers about, they identified “the effect of pesticides, fertilizers and antibiotics in food.”

 This survey undertaken in August by Ketchum Global Research Network and Braum Research on behalf of the U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance underscores the importance of consumers, farmers and ranchers all having access to accurate, science-based information about antibiotics use in food animal production.

 These individuals—plus anyone else wanting to increase their knowledge of antibiotic use in food animal production—are in luck, as a national symposium devoted to this precise topic is on tap for Oct. 26-27 in Chicago.

 “Antibiotic Use in Food Animal Production: A Dialogue for a Common Purpose,” hosted by the National Institute for Animal Agriculture, will focus on four key areas:

·         The use of antibiotics in food animal production

·         Human health implications relative to antibiotic use

·         Understanding and communicating the risks associated with methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in livestock

·         Identifying additional research needs regarding how and to what extent antimicrobial resistance develops in humans and animals

 “We’re going to look at antibiotic use in food animal production from all angles,” states Dr. Len Bull, chair of the symposium planning committee.  “This is not a black-and-white issue. It’s one where we need to delve into the gray areas as well and see what science tells and shows us.

 “While I realize that this topic can be quite polarized, I think we each can learn from the presenters and each other. The symposium is designed to be a dialogue, so symposium registrants can ask their burning questions and hear the answers from the experts.”

 The symposium will take place at the Intercontinental Hotel, O’Hare, Chicago, Ill., beginning at 3:00 p.m. Oct. 26, and wrapping up at 3:00 p.m. Oct. 27. The symposium immediately follows the 2011 Food System Summit, Oct. 25-26, hosted by the Center for Food Integrity at the same venue.

 Details of presentations and registration information for the symposium are available online at www.animalagriculture.org.

 The National Institute for Animal Agriculture (NIAA) is a non-profit, membership-driven organization that unites and advances animal agriculture—the beef, dairy, equine, goat, poultry, sheep and swine industries. NIAA is dedicated to programs that work toward the eradication of diseases that pose risk to the health of animals, wildlife and humans; promote a safe and wholesome food supply for our nation and abroad; and promote best practices in environmental stewardship, animal health and animal well-being. Members of NIAA include livestock producers, producer organizations, veterinarians, scientists, state and federal officials, and agribusiness executives.

NIAA Symposium
October 26-27, 2011 · Chicago, Illinois
“Antibiotic Use in Food Animals: 
A Dialogue for a Common Purpose

As of
October 4, 2011

**Chicago is on Central Daylight Time.  All times listed are CDT.**

The use of antibiotics in the production of food animals elicits polarizing opinions across the media today as consumers become more aware and interested in the way their food is produced.  While livestock producers have realized that significant animal illness can be avoided by the use of antibiotics, consumers are being told that any use of antibiotics leads to a lower effectiveness of antibiotics in humans. 

 

Although there have been several debates and discussions on this issue, the National Institute for Animal Agriculture (NIAA) is planning a national forum in which experts in animal agriculture, researchers in the area of livestock health, and experts in human health will come together to develop a dialogue with the common purpose of sharing fact-based information about the use of antibiotics in the sustainable production of food.

Symposium Moderator:  Dr. Scott Hurd, Associate Professor, Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine, Department of Veterinary Diagnostic and Production Animal Medicine and former Deputy Undersecretary for Food Safety, USDA/Food Safety Inspection Service

 

Wednesday, October 26

 

3:00 p.m. —   3:25 p.m.

Welcome and Purpose of Symposium

 

 

Dr. Scott Hurd, Associate Professor, Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine, Department of Veterinary Diagnostic and Production Animal Medicine and former Deputy Undersecretary for Food Safety, USDA/Food Safety Inspection Service

·         The presence of a hazard creates concern, but concern is not risk.

·         Human health risk requires sufficient exposure that will result in actual harm.

·         The causal chain for antimicrobial resistant (AMR) bacterial food borne risk assessment includes 1) AMR bacteria are selected in the food animal as a result of antimicrobial use, AND, 2) humans ingest sufficient AMR bacteria present in the relevant food product from treated animals, AND, 3) disease which causes the patient to seek medical care and treatment with an antibiotic to which the bacteria is resistant that results in an adverse health outcome.

·         Acceptable risk is difficult to determine but should include public benefits of alternative practice.

·         Risk management interventions at various points along the causal chain are intended to minimize and contain AMR foodborne bacteria to ensure public health and food safety.

·         An expected outcome for the meeting are action points for NIAA, stakeholders and consumers to contribute positively to NIAA goals.

 

3:25 p.m. —   5:30 p.m.

Antibiotics in Food Animal Production and Human Health

 

 

A Clinical Pharmacologist’s View of the Interaction of Antimicrobials and Bacteria in Food Animals

Dr. Mike Apley, Professor, Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine, Department of Production Medicine/Clinical Pharmacology

·         Attempting to define “subtherapeutic”

·         Selection pressure:  We talk as if this is a black and white concept.

·         Evaluating effects of antimicrobial use in food animal populations:  The numerators are easy.

·         Antimicrobial resistance surveillance:  Looking for a guidance in temporal associations.

 

 

The Challenge of Antimicrobial Resistance in Human Health
Dr. Robert Flamm, Director of Antimicrobial Development, JMI Laboratories

·         Bacterial resistance threatens the utility of antimicrobial agents.

·         Scientific and government efforts have been implemented to preserve and encourage the discovery of new agents.

·         Bacterial resistance rates continue to climb worldwide with the escalation as well as the types of contributing genes.

We're delighted to have Dr. Vicky Ng from the Centre for Public Health and Zoonoses at the University of Guelph as our speaker for IDEA on February 17. The seminar as always is at the Fields Institute, 222 College Street, from noon to 1 EST, and snacks will be served.

Her talk is entitled: Prioritization of Zoonotic Diseases: Insights from Conjoint Analysis


Some of you may have taken part in this study, which has been promoted via ProMED. It should be extremely interesting, from both methodological and substantive points of view. For those unfamiliar with conjoint analysis, this is a group of techniques originally used in market research which are now finding broad application in public health and healthcare policy.


Abstract

“Zoonotic diseases are diseases that are transmitted between humans and animals. Zoonotic diseases account for over half of all communicable diseases causing illness in humans and approximately 75% of new emerging diseases. As limited resources are usually available for the control and prevention of zoonotic diseases, it becomes necessary to prioritize diseases in order to direct resources into those with the greatest needs. While there is general consensus for the need to prioritize zoonotic diseases, there are numerous challenges in the process of prioritization. This talk will present on the use of Conjoint Analysis to overcome the limitations in traditional prioritization methodologies and the results from a study involving over 3,000 participants across Canada and the US.

 What could the One Health perspective bring to public health?

http://www.chnet-works.ca/

The event will start on: Mar 27, 01:30pm EDT
And will end on: Mar 27, 02:30pm EDT

The phrase ‘One Health” has gained international prominence in the past decade, mostly on the heels of emerging zoonotic infections.  In an era where chronic disease and the social determinants of health predominate much of the public health agenda, what is the relevance of an approach founded on the prevention or response to emerging zoonotic diseases, most of which create low burdens of human morbidity and mortality?

This Fireside chat will explore:
- How a perspective that links human well-being to the health of the world around us can provide insights into how to deal with complex health issues.
- Current research that demonstrates how paying attention to the world around us may help in detection and triage of environmental hazards; foster more resilient landscapes which provide important environmental health services and create capacity that will allow us to realize the Health for All ideal.

Presenter: Dr. Craig Stephen, Director, Centre for Coastal Health,  Professor- Department of Ecosystem and Public Health, University of Calgary.

Dr. Stephen is an epidemiologist and veterinarian who founded the Centre for Coastal Health (CCH) in British Columbia.  The CCH is an NGO that acts to investigate and support decisions on the detection, control and management of health issues at the interface of people, animals and our shared environment. Dr. Stephen is a Professor at the University of Calgary in the Department of Ecosystem and Public Health (Faculty of Veterinary Medicine) and Community Health Science (Faculty of Medicine) as well as a clinical professor at the UBC School of Population and Public Health.  His research interests include the environmental determinants of health and the socio-ecology of emerging environmental health hazards.

Building on NIAA’s 2011 Annual Conference theme, Consumers’ Stake in Today’s Food Production:  Meeting Growing Production Demands, the 2012 Annual Conference will focus on how decreasing resources, both natural and financial, as well as increasing regulations are making it difficult for animal agriculture to advance.  With issues such as drought, tight credit, increased capital requirements, environmental regulations, more demanding animal care standards, and misinformation about how animals are raised, animal agriculture is in an important period of change.

 The 2012 Annual Conference of the National Institute for Animal Agriculture will explore the many issues facing the industry.  We will discuss how animal agriculture can be advanced through understanding the intricacies involved with the limited resources available and continued pressure to further regulate how animals are produced.

 This year’s conference includes an important and interesting tour of animal agriculture along the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains.

Emerging Infectious Diseases Symposium

22-23 October 2012

Geelong, Victoria, Australia

 

The Emerging Infectious Diseases Symposium is taking place from 22-23 October 2012, at the Four Points by Sheraton, Geelong Waterfront, Victoria, Australia.

 

More than 120 delegates will attend this inaugural event that will focus on improving the world’s ability to protect people and animals from increasing biosecurity threats, in particular from emerging infectious diseases.

 

The last several decades has seen the emergence of many novel infectious diseases. Compounding this is the re-emergence of diseases as a result of increases in global trade, movement of animals and people, a changing climate, increased host exposure and other environmental factors. Research into emerging infectious diseases is growing rapidly, with new breakthroughs in the understanding of host-pathogen interactions and the development of innovative and exciting therapeutic strategies.

EIDS2012 will bring together the critical areas of One Health – a combined approach to animal, human and environmental health.  It will provide an opportunity to share research into new diagnostic tools, drivers for emergence of disease and innovative control strategies that will help with responding to disease outbreaks more effectively and explore ways to predict where and when the next pandemic might strike.

 

The EIDS2012 scientific program, combined with world-renowned key note speakers, will encourage a healthy exchange of information and debate.  For further information please visit the website https://wiki.csiro.au/confluence/display/ii09/EIDS2012

Establishment of Special Interest Group (SIG) in Australia as part of the Public Health Association of Australia (PHAA)

 

Late last year the PHAA approved the establishment of a SIG for One Health. This SIG seeks to inform and support policy development and implementation leading to an increased use of a one health approach wherever possible by those providing services and support to the environment, animal and human health sectors. Such SIGs have proved invaluable in the past in providing increased attention and action of specific issues relating to public health in Australia and this One Health SIG is seen as a real opportunity to drive change in this area. Julia Langford (DFID) and Martyn Jeggo (CSIRO) are co-convenors of this SIG and with the management committee are putting together a strategic plan and list of short and medium term deliverables for this One Health SIG. Further details can be found on the PHAA website http://www.phaa.net.au/

Physician and Veterinarian Collaboration : Zoobiquity Conference 2013 in NYC (USA)

 

Zoobiquity Conference 2013 in NYC

Harnessing the Power of Physician and Veterinarian Collaboration

Saturday, November 2, 2013

 

Nearly 30 of the nation’s leading experts in medicine - both physicians and veterinarians - are joining forces on Saturday, November 2 at the third  Annual Zoobiquity Conference in a bid to help improve the health of both human and animal patients. The event, to be held at Rockefeller University (morning session) and the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Bronx Zoo (afternoon session) will feature fascinating case studies in people and across various other animal species.

 

Dr. Harvey Fineberg, President of the Institute of Medicine (IOM) and a conference keynote speaker, comments, “Human health is inextricably linked to the health and well-being of animals and the ecosystem we all share.  This conference promises to open new opportunities for physicians and veterinarians to collaborate in ways that will simultaneously advance human health and animal well-being.”

 

Some of the fascinating cases to be presented include: breast cancer in Siberian tigers and post-menopausal women; cognitive dysfunction in older dogs and Alzheimer’s disease in the elderly; epilepsy in gorillas and humans; and malaria in penguins and people. 

 

Leaders in human medicine including Dr. Larry Norton from the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center’s Breast Cancer Programs, Dr. Orrin Devinsky from NYU Comprehensive Epilepsy Center, and Dr. Elaine Ostrander from the National Human Genome Research Institute at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) will be joined by such veterinary leaders as Dr. Paul Calle from the Wildlife Conservation Society and Dr. Richard Goldstein of The Animal Medical Center in NYC for this one-day event hosted by The Animal Medical Center-NY, the Wildlife Conservation Society and David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.

 

A full listing of conference presenters can be found at:

http://zoobiquity.com/conference-research/conference/2013-pages/conference-speakers\

 

Dr. Barbara Natterson-Horowitz, a practicing cardiologist at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and co-author of Zoobiquity, upon which the conference is based, wanted to create a platform for the country’s leading physicians and veterinarians to come together to collaboratively identify solutions to health challenges impacting both humans and animals. Dr. Elaine Ostrander of the NIH whose comparative genomic work stands to benefit both human and non-human animal patients states, “This is an exciting opportunity to bring people from different disciplines to better understand the role of important comparative areas such as genetics in deciphering disease processes.”

For Immediate Release

 

Penn Vet, Penn Medicine, and CHOP to Host Second Annual Microbiome Symposium - Wednesday, October 28, 2015, from 6-7:30pm

 

Featuring Dr. Jo Handelsman of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy

 

[September 30, 2015; Philadelphia, PA] – Antibiotic resistance. Innate immunity. Pathogenic microbes. Research on the microbiome continues to pique the interest of many, as scientists explore how bacteria, parasites, viruses, and other organisms interact with their animal and human hosts in ways that either maintain health or lead to disease. These topics and more will be discussed at the upcoming Microbiome Symposium, presented by Penn Vet’s Center for Host-Microbial Interactions and the PennCHOP Microbiome Program.

 

The two-day symposium will begin with a special public event – a discussion with Dr. Jo Handelsman, Associate Director for Science at the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP). Her talk, “The Earth's Microbiomes: Opportunities for Research and Policy,” will take place on Wednesday, October 28, 2015, from 6-7:30pm at Penn Vet’s Hill Pavilion (380 S. University Ave., Philadelphia). According to Dr. Handelsman, there is tremendous potential for managing microbiomes to achieve beneficial outcomes for human health, agricultural productivity, clean energy supply, environmental health, and the economy. However, she believes that a new approach to microbiome research is needed. Admission to this event is FREE, but registration is recommended at http://www.vet.upenn.edu/CHMI-Symposium-2015.

 

Presentations for the scientific community will take place on Thursday, October 29, 2015, at the Biomedical Research Building (421 Curie Blvd., Philadelphia). Registration is available here.

 

Dr. Jo Handelsman was appointed to her position by President Obama and confirmed by the Senate in June of 2014. In this role, she helps to advise President Obama on the implications of science for the nation, ways in which science can inform U.S. policy, and federal efforts in support of scientific research.

 

Dr. Handelsman is an expert in communication among bacteria that associate with soil, plants, and insects. She helped pioneer the field of metagenomics, bridging agricultural and medical sciences. She is also recognized for her research on science education and women and minorities in science, and received the Presidential Award for Excellence in Science Mentoring in 2011. Dr. Handelsman also co-chaired the PCAST working group that developed the 2012 report, “Engage to Excel,” which contained recommendations to the President to strengthen STEM education to meet the workforce needs of the next decade in the United States.

 

Prior to joining OSTP, Dr. Handelsman was the Howard Hughes Medical Institute Professor and Frederick Phineas Rose Professor in the Department of Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology at Yale University. She received a B.S. from Cornell University and a Ph.D. in Molecular Biology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

 

This event is part of the University of Pennsylvania’s ongoing efforts in support of the One Health Initiative, which is dedicated to improving the lives of all species through the integration of human medicine, veterinary medicine, and environmental science.

 

About the Center for Host-Microbial Interactions

 

Penn Vet’s Center for Host-Microbial Interactions is designed to facilitate collaborative projects that leverage genomics to study the intersection of microbes and disease. In doing so, researchers gain insight into how bacteria, parasites, viruses, and other organisms interact with their animal and human hosts in ways that either maintain health or lead to disease. Each year, the Center invites researchers to submit proposals for funding. Additionally, the Center provides ongoing support and training for Penn Vet faculty and their labs to carry out analyses of the complex datasets generated by genomic approaches. For more information about the Center, click here.  

 

About the PennCHOP Microbiome Program

 

Each of us lives in association with vast numbers of microbes that colonize our bodies and influence our long-term health. Many trillions of microbes—too small to be seen by the naked eye--live in our guts and elsewhere on our bodies. These microbes contribute to health by helping with digestion, guiding growth of our immune systems, and shouldering out invading pathogens. Human individuals differ greatly in the composition of their microbiota, and evidence suggests that distinctive populations in each of us influence our health in unique ways. The University of Pennsylvania and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia have launched a Microbiome Program to take advantage of new research in this area to advance the health of children and adults. The goals of the PennCHOP Microbiome Program are to understand the human microbiome and alter its priorities to improve health.

NIAA’s ABX Symposium Develops Vital Relationships, Common Ground

 

 

 

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — “We’re all coming to the same conclusion, at the same time,” says Dr. Mike Apley, Professor, Production Medicine/ Clinical Pharmacology at Kansas State University and key speaker at the upcoming NIAA-hosted Antibiotics Symposium to be held in Atlanta, November 3-5.

“Animal agriculture, veterinarian medicine, human medicine… we are all seeing that our new antibiotic pipeline is going to be much, much more limited,” he says. Apley was interviewed for SwineCast this week on his involvement with the Symposium. (
http://traffic.libsyn.com/animalcast/2015ABX_Apley.mp3)

Apley says the Symposium’s purpose of working to build a bridge between animal health and human health is important for both mutual fact-checking and to build relationships. “We are all in this together,” he says. “We can learn a lot from how each is approaching this. We can’t let this break down into Us vs. Them, with lines drawn. We have to make sure we are talking about things together.”

 

 

 

The Symposium’s theme this year is Antibiotics Stewardship: From Metrics to Management. Apley admits that coming up with a definitive yardstick to measure risk benefits that all parties can agree on will be very difficult. However, the opportunity to have the conversation, face to face, in the same room is what he finds exciting about NIAA’s Symposium.

 


“If we just exchange information through social media or press releases, we’re never going to move this anywhere,” says Apley. He looks forward to having discussions with people who are dealing with patients, whether those patients are human, food animals or pets, about what they are seeing and hearing. “That’s how we are going to find common ground to work together,” says Apley.

 


This is the 5th annual NIAA-hosted Symposium on the subject, bringing together industry experts, academia, public health officials and animal and human health professionals for presentations and discussions, and the second with working sessions on finding a system of measurement to manage this important concern. According to Apley, the US is very data-driven on this issue and the FDA has been instrumental in keeping scientific analysis at the forefront.

NIAA Antibiotics Symposium Brings Together Industry Leaders in Animal and Human Health – Nov 3-5, 2015

 

Colorado Springs, Colo. – The National Institute for Animal Agriculture (NIAA) will be hosting its fifth annual antibiotic symposium, November 3-5, 2015 in Atlanta, Ga., at the Crowne Plaza Atlanta Midtown. This year’s conference is titled, Antibiotic Stewardship: From Metrics to Management and will be a unique forum bringing together leading researchers, government officials, retailers, and industry professionals in animal and human health.

 

Dr. Steve Solomon, [MD], a physician will be the Symposium’s moderator and brings over 30 years experience with the National Center for Emerging & Zoonotic Infectious Diseases at the Center for Disease Control.  He currently owns a consulting agency -- Global Public Health Consulting. “This is not just a gathering to discuss the challenges faced by the varied sectors,” says Dr. Solomon. “It is about a rich exchange of information, the development of a metrics framework, and moving forward on this very contentious and vital subject.”

 

NIAA has been at the forefront of driving the conversation about antibiotic use in animal agriculture and the related human health component. With increased consumer interest on this subject, and government focus on the rise, solutions from this diverse group of professionals and leaders will go a long way in filling the information gap that exists in the public and private sectors. 

 

Solomon goes on to say, “It’s important to hear from people we don’t necessarily agree with. Everyone’s goal is to use antibiotics in an optimal way.”

National Institute for Animal Agriculture Annual Conference April 4-6, 2016 - Kansas City, Mo (USA)

 

 Food System Biosecurity Featured at NIAA Annual Conference, Species by Species

 

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.“I’ve been impressed every year with the NIAA Annual Conference themes and how they are presented,” says Paul Rodgers, Deputy Director of Policy at the American Sheep Industry Association. “The General Sessions give a broad prospective of the year’s theme, and the special Sessions set aside for individual species really let you dig into the topic and its impact on your own area of the industry.” NIAA member Rodgers serves as a co-chair, along with Ron Miller, Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, for the NIAA Small Ruminant Committee and its session at this year’s NIAA Annual Conference to be held in April in Kansas City, Mo.

 

Each year, the National Institute for Animal Agriculture chooses a theme for its Annual Conference from the most important and trending topics impacting species across the animal agriculture industry. The 2016 theme "From Farm to Table – Food System Biosecurity for Animal Agriculture" will focus on identifying risks, challenges and solutions of animal disease epidemics at a time when both the swine and poultry industries are still recovering from much-publicized and economically damaging disease outbreaks.

 

Rodgers says the Small Ruminant Session speakers will offer a different perspective on how biosecurity will impact Small Ruminants and animal agriculture as a whole.  “We don’t necessarily share all the same diseases as swine and poultry, but we can all benefit from what they have been learning about transportation and biosecurity.”

 

Dr. Glynn Tonsor, Associate Professor, Department of Agricultural Economics, Kansas State University, will be addressing the economic risk of animal disease spread and the investment into biosecurity. Tonsor will approach the subject from the regulatory side of food safety and animal health, as well as the practices, choices and incentives which drive decision making on biosecurity.

 

Integrity of Risk Assessment Science Underlying USDA Policy” is the title of Dr. Mark Thurmond’s presentation to the Small Ruminant Session.  Thurmond is Professor Emeritus at the Department of Medicine & Epidemiology, School of Veterinary Medicine, at University of California, Davis. He will look at the difference between qualitative and quantitative risk assessment in risk modeling, and speak to the process of putting a numerical values on risk.

 

Dr. Linda Detweiler, Clinical Professor, Department of Pathobiology & Population Medicine, College of Veterinary Medicine, at Mississippi State University, will present on the subject of “Emergency Response Preparedness: Considerations for the Small Ruminant Industry.” She will focus on diseases more specific to the Small Ruminant industry.

 

Biosecurity, says Rodgers, is relevant to all of animal agriculture. It goes hand in hand with animal care, food security and the economic components of loss. In addition, Rodgers says biosecurity is very important to the Small Ruminant industry both at home and as it relates to trade. The Small Ruminant industry in the US may not be as large as in some other countries, but it is still a very important one. Sheep and goats are a major source of red meat and natural fibers around the world. “On both sides, import and export,” says Rodgers, “meeting safety regulations and having secure processes in place can impact whether or not animals are considered valuable and influence the marketplace.”

 

The NIAA Annual Conference will be held April 4-6, 2016 at the Downtown Marriott in Kansas City, Mo. and will provide speakers and presentations for twelve separate agendas for Species Committees and Issues Council meetings within the Conference along with the General Sessions, pre-Conference tour, and an additional special BVD Forum following the Conference on April 7th.
