Instructor: Michael Bisesi
Date: July 11, 7-10 a.m. EDT
Environmental Health is the science and practice of preventing human injury and illness and promoting well-being by (1) identifying and evaluating sources and hazardous agents; and (2) limiting exposures to hazardous physical, chemical and biological agents in air, water, soil, food and other environmental media or settings that may adversely affect human health, as well as animal health.
Instructor: Olorunfemi Adetona
Dates: July 12, 7-10 a.m. EDT
Risk assessment is a framework for evaluating scientific information to assess the nature and probability of adverse effects of exposures to toxic biological, chemical and physical agents in human and ecological receptors. Risk assessment is used to inform policy decisions and is a scientific basis for environmental regulations.
Instructor: Mark H. Weir
Date: July 13, 7-10 a.m. EDT
This module will focus on why water safety plans (WSPs) exist, the limitations of epidemiological and environmental health methods that lead to the needed convergent methods employed and how these are enacted in nations at both ends of the income spectrum. Specific examples will focus on Australia for wastewater reclamation considerations, the Netherlands for field leadership in this space, the United States for mixing WSPs with reactive regulatory regimes and Argentina for SDG and LMIC contexts.
Instructor: Michael Bisesi
Date: July 14, 7-10 a.m. EDT
Emergency management focuses on the phases of preparedness/planning, recognition and response, recovery and prevention and mitigation relative to both natural and anthropogenic incidents that may be declared as public health emergencies. A description of these phases with reference to applicable guidelines as well as the components and approaches for an effective and efficient incident command system are presented.
Instructor: Zelalem Mekuria
Dates: July 18-29
This course will highlight the principles and the use of core molecular methods, including advances in genomics sequencing and bioinformatics approaches for infectious disease genomic epidemiology.
Instructor: Dawit Mulugeta
Dates: August 1-4, 6-7:30 a.m. EDT
This week-long class is designed to cover the what, the why and the how aspects of NNT. Each lecture will be 90 minutes. The focus will be on the applications and the practical uses of NNT using some structured and unstructured data. Each lecture will last one and half hours. Python is the medium of instruction, and students are expected to have access to a computer and the internet. Students are expected to use Python codes to do basic analytics tasks. Previous knowledge of Python is not a requirement. The instructor will demonstrate diverse NNT topics covered in class using Python and provide the corresponding scripts.
Instructor: Prosper N. Boyaka
Date: August 4, 7-10 a.m. EDT
The goal of this workshop is to give graduate students, postdoctoral trainees and non-immunologist professionals basic terminology and immunological perspective on the impact of vaccines on animal and human health. The training will include lectures and group case studies to facilitate the application of the knowledge gained in their respective activities. It will explore basic principles of vaccines (live vs. subunit vaccines, routes of delivery, adjuvants and delivery systems); factors affecting the efficacy of vaccines (pathogen, environmental and host factors); and impacts of animal vaccines on human health (zoonoses, safety and efficiency data).
Instructor: Wondwossen Gebreyes
Date: August 8-11, 7-10 a.m. EDT
The overarching goal of this workshop is to strengthen the capacity of higher education and research institutes’ faculty and staff members in identifying financial resources to support their research and training activities enable them to write competitive grants navigate through the peer-review process and highlight post-award grant management.
Instructor: Francesca Compostella
Dates: August 15-18, 8-10 a.m. EDT/3-5 p.m. EAT
This course builds on the core equine ambulatory skills, aimed at helping the equine practitioner tackle general health issues encountered in the field. Conventional first opinion techniques will be covered while introducing a One Health approach to fieldwork, providing a better understanding of the etiology, transmission and control of infectious diseases important to veterinary medicine and public health. Theoretical and practical aspects of equine field medicine and surgery will be discussed in the context of working equines used in the developing sector, with a particular focus on the Ethiopian context. About 7 topics will be covered in this module.
