Ebola Virus: An Emerged Public Health Threat
The 2014-2015 Liberian centered epidemic of Ebola virus is the largest ever recorded. This zoonotic (historically foreign animal African disease) disease is an extraordinary example of constant emergence of new and novel diseases generated by human activities. The convergence of human behavior with varied animal species is a constant generator of new public health threats. The understanding of new disease transmission mechanisms is critical to public health interventions.
Dr. John W. Poe received his DVM from Auburn University in 1981 and Master in Public Health (Epidemiology) from University of Kentucky in 2002. He currently works as the Kentucky State Public Health Veterinarian and also continues to operate a veterinary clinic. He has previously served as Veterinary Medical Officer and Medical Epidemiologist for the Kentucky Department of Public Health. Current duties include consultation to health professionals and the public relating to communicable diseases, animal bites and zoonoses; expertise in control of zoonotic, tick-borne, arboviruses and other communicable diseases; and involvement in drafting and reviewing legislation pertinent to public health. He is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association Ebola Companion Animal Response Plan Working Group.
