INTA Professor Margaret Kosal attended a June conference on Factors Influencing Emerging Infectious Diseases in the Southeast. The conference was sponsored by the Southeastern Center for Emerging Biologic Threats (SECEBT) led by Emory University including 31 university, public health, and governmental collaborators with experience in disease control and prevention.

Topics discussed included demographic patterns affecting disease emergence, global migration implications for the southeast, waterborne disease risk and climate change, vectorborne diseases old and new, and foodborne disease issues.

Following the conference, Professor Kosal participated in an invitation-only workshop, the Southeast Region Tabletop Exercise, that will include academics, state health officials, laboratory directors, state and public health veterinarians, and representatives of federal organizations. They identified the issues that arise during a multi-state outbreak in the southeast in order to analyze and alleviate gaps in existing procedures.
