AGENDA

​NH IMMUNIZATION CONFERENCE

Connecting the Dots to Preventative Health: All Ages and Stages

7:30-8:30             Registration, Continental Breakfast & Exhibits


8:30-9:00             Welcome, Introductions & Awards


9:00-10:00           Plenary Presentation

                              Connecting New Dots: Emerging Infectious Diseases

                              Elizabeth A. Talbot, MD, Associate Professor of Infectious Diseases and International Health,                                                                         Dartmouth College, and Deputy State Epidemiologist, NH Department of Health and Human Services


                                  Vaccines have won formidable battles against many of mankind’s endemic infectious diseases, which                                                           will be reviewed in other sessions of this conference.


                                  In this plenary session, we will ask whether vaccines can win the war against our recent emerging infectious                                               diseases. We will ask which are our most pressing active or anticipated epidemics. For example, what vaccine can                                     we pull from the armamentarium if avian flu jumps species and becomes the next human pandemic? We will                                             review the current status of the Ebola Virus epidemic, with focus on the unprecedented vaccine development and                                   rollout.  We will review the stunning revelations about the emergence of cholera in Haiti, and make sure we are                                         familiar with the newly FDA-approved cholera vaccine.  We will also enumerate the relevant challenges of the Zika                                     epidemic, review the vaccine pipeline and anticipate the ethical dilemma of using a new vaccine in the most                                               vulnerable population of pregnant women.

                                  Following this session, participants will be able to:

                                  -Describe how vaccines are developed.

                                  -Explain the roles of vaccines for emerging infectious disease (EID) control.

                                  -Describe the current status of important EIDs globally.
