Right now, the U.S. spends more on health care than other comparable countries. What do we have to show for that spending? Numerous studies show that we live shorter lives and struggle with more health issues such as obesity, infant mortality, diabetes, heart disease and more. And this is true for Americans of all ages and socio-economic groups. This is the defining challenge of our generation – that we, the public health community, are uniquely positioned to overcome. That’s why, during National Public Health Week 2015, the public health community is rallying around a goal of making the U.S. the Healthiest Nation in One Generation—by 2030.  Check back in the next couple of months to see just how the University of Georgia College of Public Health is celebrating!

Admiral in the global war on Malaria visits Athens and UGA  Over the six years that Rear Adm. Timothy Ziemer has led the USAID President’s Malaria Initiative, malaria deaths worldwide have fallen by near half.  Called one of the “most quietly succesful” campaigns in public health today, Ziemer has aligned the efforts of aid groups working to end malaria, insisted on accountability for outreach funding and helped reduce the impact of a disease that sickens almost 200 million people annually and kills between 500,000 and 600,000 a year. Ziemer will share the lessons he’s learned from this journey and his plans for the future on Tuesday, April 14, at UGA from 4-5:30 p.m. with his lecture “President's Malaria Initiative: The U.S. Government's Commitment to the Global Malaria Fight.” This lecture is free and open to the public, and it will be held in Masters Hall at the Georgia Center for Continuing Education on UGA’s Athens Campus. The UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, the College of Public Health and the Georgia Regents University-UGA Medical Partnership are hosting the lecture.  For more information about Adm. Ziemer visit http://www.pmi.gov/about and  http://www.nytimes.com/2014/10/21/science/a-quiet-approach-to-bringing-down-malaria.html?_r=0 For more information about the talk, please visit  http://calendar.uga.edu/index.php/detail/guest-lecture-timothy-ziemer or call Candy Sears at 706-542-3924.
