Friday, 16 November 2012 from 09:00 to 12:15 (GMT)


London, United Kingdom




Mayor Nancy Chaney Participates in National League of Cities Conference (USA)


Nov. 5, 2012 (Moscow, Idaho) — *Mayor Nancy Chaney, Moscow, Idaho was recently appointed as one of 15 members of the National League of Cities (NLC) Nominating Committee that will be responsible for recommending a slate of officers and board members to lead NLC in 2013. Next year's leaders will be elected during the Annual Business Meeting at the Congress of Cities and Exposition in Boston, Massachusetts, on Saturday afternoon, Dec. 1.


Also at the Conference, the NLC University Communities Council (UCC), chaired by Chaney, will showcase NLC's One Health Resolution 2012–17. Guest presenter *Peter Rabinowitz, MD, associate professor in the Occupational and Environmental Medicine Program at Yale, and affiliate of the international One Health Initiative Advisory Board, will speak about inter-relationships among human, animal, and ecological health and implications for local government.


As noted in NLC’s One Health Resolution 2012–17, “The One Health Initiative is the collaborative objective of multiple disciplines, including the American Medical Association (AMA), U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), their international counterparts, and environmental organizations, working locally, nationally, and globally to disseminate information about human health, animal health, and environmental health. … Successful adoption and implementation of the One Health Initiative will be predicated on the leadership, communication skills, and cooperation of its advocates.”


Scott Fedale, chair of the City of Moscow Sustainable Environment Commission, states, “I applaud the National League of Cities for engaging in a discussion on the One Health Initiative project.  This initiative promises to expand collaborations and communication across disciplines in all areas of health care for humans, animals and the environment, as well as expanding the base of scientific knowledge in the public health arena."


For more information on the NLC Conference, Chaney’s appointment to the Nominating Committee, or her coordination of the UCC sessions, please contact Chaney at 208.883.7080 or by email at nchaney@ci.moscow.id.us.

One Health Message from President of the World Medical Association (WMA)



Sent to One Health Initiative website February 5, 2013


“Following the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the World Medical Association (WMA) and the World Veterinary Association (WVA) at the WMA meeting in Bangkok last October, Margaret Mungherera, MD, President-elect of the WMA and President of the Ugandan Medical Association, took the idea of a MOU back to her country.


As a result there is scheduled a three-day (February 14-16, 2013) joint conference* sponsored by the Uganda Medical Association (UMA) and Uganda Veterinary Association (UVA) with the theme "Disease Eradication: What will it take?". The most impressive program for the conference is attached. The hope is that the meeting will provide focus and strategies for cooperation, and the plan is to complete a MOU between the UMA and UVA during the meeting to be signed at the conclusion.


According to Margaret there is already a One Health initiative sponsored by a veterinary and a medical school in Makerere University; supported by USAID with activities in Countries in Eastern and Central Africa including Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, DRC and Ethiopia. This group has supported the conference by bringing three presenters to give their countries' experiences and USAID is flying in the keynote speaker.


Margaret is, in her words, "overwhelmed by the response" and is thinking about making this conference an annual event.”

ProMED Editor Urges Attendance at Upcoming 2013 “International Meeting on Emerging Diseases and Surveillance” (IMED)


 Lawrence C. Madoff, MD, Editor of ProMED-mail http://www.promedmail.org/ is urging the One Health community and all others to “recognize the importance of and consider attending the IMED 2013 meeting, coming up in February in Vienna and co-sponsored by ProMED (along with HealthMap, ESCMID [European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases] FAO [Food Agricultural Organization], OIE [World Organisation for Animal Health], ECDC [European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control] and EcoHealth Alliance).”  The IMED meeting is scheduled to be held in Vienna, Austria, Feb 15-18, 2013.


 Dr. Madoff says, “This will be the fourth IMED and it is a uniquely "one health" meeting where the attendees have been nearly equally divided between the human and animal health realms and most sessions contain talks of interest across species lines. Most of the ProMED staff have been able to attend past meetings (although funding is uncertain this year).” 


Dr. Madoff, a Professor of Medicine at the University of Massachusetts Medical School and an infectious disease public health physician, is a widely recognized One Health leader, supporter and advocate.  He currently serves on the One Health Initiative team’s Honorary Advisory Board http://www.onehealthinitiative.com/advBoard.php.

2013 One Health Symposium: Breaking Barriers and Crossing Scales  (Click here to find out more.)





On behalf of the University of Georgia (USA)  Biomedical and Health Sciences Institute, UGA Faculty of Infectious Diseases, and the University of Liverpool, UK,  we are delighted to invite you to Athens, Ga. and the University of Georgia campus for the One Health Symposium: Breaking Barrier and Crossing Scales from 21-23 March 2013.

This symposium will bring together researchers, human and animal healthcare practitioners, clinicians, and experts in microbiology, infectious diseases, disease ecology, human and veterinary medicine, environmental health, public health, health policy, and wildlife to discuss disease diagnosis and health practice through the lens of “One Health,” a multidisciplinary approach to studying and understanding health issues at the nexus of human, animal, and environmental health.

The interconnection of human, animal, and environmental health has been recognized for centuries, but the increased complexity of the modern world was unimaginable even 50 years ago. The interrelationship among animals, humans, and the environment are intimate, significant and far-reaching; studying them effectively requires a somewhat novel approach. Because of this One Health not only encourages interdisciplinary collaborations, but constitutes a departure from the current emphasis on the clinical care of individual human and veterinary patients to one of disease prevention and health promotion at a meta-ecosystem level.

The aim of the One Health Symposium at the University of Georgia is stimulate this growing movement in One Health both at home and abroad.  We do hope we can enlist you to join us in the conversation this March.

     Poultry Production & Management: Veterinary & Nutritional Aspects - Protein Enhancement to Help Combat Hunger

April 8 –  May 2, 2013



MASHAV is the Hebrew acronym for the Israel's Agency for International Development Cooperation, a department established 50 years ago in Israel's Ministry of Foreign Affairs. MASHAV is responsible for designing and implementing Israel's international development programs, carried out in Israel and in development partner countries.


In cooperation with the Hebrew University of Jerusalem's Faculty of Agriculture – MASHAV's only academic professional affiliate – we are pleased to announce the opening of a training and capacity building course entitled Poultry Production & Management: Veterinary & Nutritional Aspects - Protein Enhancement to Help Combat Hunger

The course will be held in Israel at the Robert H. Smith Faculty of Agriculture, Food and Environment, Division of External Studies in Rehovot.



Proteins are the building blocks of life. They are necessary for the regulation of human metabolism and healthy growth and development. Poultry, specifically chicken, is the world's primary source of animal protein which is available throughout the year. Therefore, the global production of protein is a key factor in determining the nutritional level of nations around the world.

In addition, the profitability of poultry growing in the future will determine the amount of protein available for consumption. Taking into account the fact that poultry products are low cost with high protein nutritional value, it is clear that an increase in poultry production will lead to the acceleration of protein consumption around the world.



The aim of the course is to train participants in the area of poultry science (physiology, production, management, veterinary and nutritional aspects) in order to enable participants to apply new tools towards finding solutions to specific problems in their countries.

We anticipate that participants will return to their respective home countries with new scientific knowledge and research approaches. Simultaneously, they are establishing a basis for future research cooperation between the participants and the researchers at The Robert H. Smith Faculty of Agriculture, Food & Environment.

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:



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.”

Track 2

Zoobiquity: How Veterinarians Will Transform Human Medicine (6 CE)


Barbara Natterson-Horowitz, M.D. -  A longstanding physician One Health Supporter http://www.onehealthinitiative.com/supporters.php


“Animals and people get the same diseases, yet physicians and veterinarians rarely consult one another. Zoobiquity explores how animal and human commonality can be used to diagnose, treat, and heal patients of all species. Drawing on the latest in medical and veterinary science—as well as evolutionary and molecular biology—we propose an integrated, interdisciplinary approach to physical and behavioral health in humans and non-human animals. This talk will explore animal-human correlates in cancer, heart disease, obesity and infection as well as psychiatric conditions including self-injury, compulsive grooming, sexual dysfunction, and substance-seeking. Dr. Natterson-Horowitz challenges the human medical community to recognize comparative medicine as translational science, bringing knowledge from veterinary and evolutionary medicine to the human bedside.”

Penn Vet to Host Symposium on Microbes in Health and Disease 


Featuring Acclaimed Science Writer Carl Zimmer - Wednesday, October 15, 2014 from 6-7:30pm


Inn at Penn - 3600 Sansom St., Philadelphia, PA (USA)


Ashley Berke, Director of Communications, 215-898-1475/berke@vet.upenn.edu


John Donges, Communications Coordinator, 215-898-4234/jdonges@vet.upenn.edu


For Immediate Release


 [September 12, 2014; Philadelphia, PA] – From a major Ebola outbreak in West Africa to MERS in Saudi Arabia to polio in Syria to chikungunya in the Caribbean, the news these days is full of stories about viruses. The Microbial Communities in Health and Disease symposium, sponsored by Penn Vet, in collaboration with the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine and School of Arts & Sciences, will 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.


 The timely, two-day symposium will begin with a special public event – a discussion with acclaimed science writer Carl Zimmer on Wednesday, October 15, 2014 from 6-7:30pm at the Inn at Penn (3600 Sansom St., Philadelphia). Presentations for the scientific community will take place at Penn Vet’s Hill Pavilion (380 S. University Ave., Philadelphia) on Thursday, October 16, 2014. Admission is FREE, but registration is required at www.vet.upenn.edu/carlzimmer (for the 10/15 event) and http://www.vet.upenn.edu/chmisymposium (for the 10/16 presentations).


 Author and New York Times columnist Carl Zimmer will discuss “A Planet of Viruses: How Humans Can Live Safely on a Viral World.” One of the most frightening things about viruses is how they emerge without warning, vanish mysteriously, and then return again even more dangerous than before. Zimmer will discuss how scientists are uncovering the hidden rules by which new viruses evolve and spread. To do so, they’re exploring the networks of connections that join human societies together and also link our species to other animals with which we share the planet—and with which we can share diseases.


 On October 16, eight prominent scientists will discuss cutting-edge work investigating how microbes not only cause disease, but also how “good bugs” promote health. Speakers include:


  • Janelle Ayres, PhD, Nomis Foundation Laboratories, Salk Institute for Biological Studies
  • Yasmine Belkaid, PhD, Chief, Mucosal Immunology Section, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases
  • Claire Fraser, PhD, Director, Institute for Genome Sciences, University of Maryland School of Medicine
  • Jack Gilbert, PhD, Department of Ecology & Evolution, University of Chicago
  • Sergio Lira, MD, PhD, Director, Immunology Institute, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai
  • Martin F. Polz, PhD, Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
  • John Rawls, PhD, Department of Molecular Genetics & Microbiology, Duke University Medical Center
  • Ramnik Xavier, MD, PhD, Director, Center for the Study of Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Massachusetts General Hospital 


This event is made possible in part by the Provost Interdisciplinary Seminar Fund Award and exemplifies 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.


 The symposium is spearheaded by Penn Vet’s Center for Host-Microbial Interactions. The Center funded five pilot projects last year to explore the intersection of microbes and disease in order to benefit both animal and human health. The second round of funded projects will be announced next month. For more information, visit www.vet.upenn.edu/chmi.
