As Honors Week highlights the outstanding research currently underway at UGA, we would like to recognize the transformative and life-changing work of Dr. José Cordero, our 2020 recipient of the College of Public Health's Excellence in Research Award.

Dr. Cordero is the Patel Distinguished Professor of Public Health and Head of our Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics. Originally trained as a pediatrician, Cordero has dedicated his career to addressing maternal and child health as well as minority health and health disparities. He currently co-directs the Puerto Rico Test site for Exploring Contamination Threats (PROTECT) Center as well as the Center for Research on Early Childhood Exposure and Development (CRECE), both of which examine how exposure to environmental contaminants contributes to the high rate of preterm birth in Puerto Rico. In recent years, this work has expanded to include the impacts of the Zika outbreak and Hurricane Maria.

His honors for distinguished service includes the APHA Sedgwick Memorial Medal and the establishment of an award in his name by the Puerto Rico Public Health Trust.

Please join us in congratulating and thanking Dr. Cordero. His commitment and caring for his research participants, co-investigators and research staff, students and post-docs, in addition to his excellence in scientific inquiry, are unparalleled.

Wondering if a mask would protect you from COVID-19? CDC does not currently recommend the general American public use a facemask to protect against novel coronavirus. Only healthcare professionals caring for COVID-19 patients, people who are sick with COVID-19, or in some cases people caring for patients who are sick with COVID-19 need precautions like a facemask to help limit their risk of spreading COVID-19.

CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions, like staying home when you are sick and washing hands with soap and water, to help prevent the spread of respiratory illness. http://bit.ly/3ceEJwP

See our very own Dr. Whalen & Dr. Castellano.

This semester, Dr. Christopher Whalen, Holbrook Distinguished Professor in Global Health, was invited by the Universidad del Valle de Guatemala (UVG) Master's Degree Program in Epidemiology to teach a face-to-face, two-day workshop on epidemiological study design. Dr. Maru Castellanos, a post doc in Dr. Whalen’s lab and a Guatemala native, served as translator for the course.

Students of the UVG graduate program hail from Central America and the Caribbean. Many of them work in governmental or private health agencies/hospitals and are part of the surveillance systems of their countries.

New research from the University of Georgia revealed that a majority of Americans, especially those aged 65 and above, lack access to quality opioid use disorder treatment.

“We need dramatic quality improvements in existing programs— namely increased access to FDA approved substance use disorder treatment medications across all insurance types,” said Samantha Harris, lead author and Ph.D. candidate in the UGA School of Public and International Affairs.

“The idea is to introduce bench immunologists to a tool set that they probably don’t know about,” said Andreas Handel, an associate professor of epidemiology and biostatistics in UGA’s College of Public Health.

Simulation models have been used in the study of infectious disease and epidemiology for over one hundred years. Mastery of these techniques would allow immunologists to study how the body responds to infection, allergens, cancer, and autoimmune conditions.

Did you know that one in four U.S. adults is living with at least one chronic disease and that many of these diseases are accompanied with chronic pain?

A new study from the University of Georgia - which is the first to examine the relationship between hospitalizations due to opioid misuse and chronic disease - reveals that preventing chronic disease could help curb the opioid epidemic.
