What: Predicting and Mitigating Outbreaks of Vector-Borne Disease Utilizing Satellite Remote Sensing Technology and Models

When: Wednesday, Dec. 10, 2008 8 - 9:45 a.m.

Where: The American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene Annual Meeting, Sheraton New Orleans

This symposium will review progress in the effort to predict and potentially halt vector-borne disease outbreaks using remote sensing parameters. The speakers will discuss models developed by NASA and their partners for application of the research results for improved prevention and prediction of outbreaks. Key areas of discussion will include Malaria Early Warning Network, Malaria Modeling and Surveillance Updates, Avian Influenza Risk Prediction and Pandemic Influenza Early Warning.

Panel members will include:

  • Session Chair Overview
    - Sue M. Estes, NASA/USRA, Huntsville, AL

  • Remote Sensing Modeling and Surveillance of Malaria and Avian Influenza Risk Prediction in South East Asia and Early Warning of Pandemic Influenza
    - Richard Kiang, NASA, Greenbelt, MD

  • Utilization of NASA Earth Science Research Results to Enhance the CDC ArboNET/Plague Surveillance System and Predicting Zoonotic Hemorrhagic Fever Events in Sub-Saharan Africa Using NASA Earth Science Data for global Emerging Infections Surveillance
    - Jorge Pinzon, NASA, Greenbelt, MD

  • Malaria Early Warning System (MEWS)/Famine Early Warning System (FEWS)
    - Molly Brown, NASA, Greenbelt, MD

  • Integration of Remote Sensing into Encephalitis Virus Intervention Decision Support Systems
    - William Reisen, University of California, Davis
