Kansas City One Health Day
On Nov. 1, groups from around the world are celebrating a collaborative approach to human, animal and environmental health called One Health. Kansas City is celebrating, too.
Join Kansas State University BioNexus KC and BioKansas for Kansas City One Health Day. This year's topic is "Outsmarting Antibiotic Resistance." The event is from 3-6 p.m. at K-State Olathe and features activities about a One Health approach to antibiotic stewardship.
The event will be livestreamed on Zoom.

"Antibiotic Resistance - A One Health Perspective"
Dennis Ridenour, MBA
Dr. Masako Mizusawa, M.D., Ph.D., M.S.
Dr. Mizusawa graduated from medical school at Tohoku University in Japan. She completed an internal medicine residency at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York, an infectious disease fellowship at Tufts Medical Center in Boston, and a medical microbiology fellowship at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. Mizusawa joined the faculty of University of Missouri - Kansas City/Truman Medical Center in 2017 and serves as an infectious disease attending physician, a director of antimicrobial stewardship, and a microbiology laboratory consultant.
Dr. Mike Apley, Ph.D., D.V.M., DACVCP
Dr. Apley teaches in the beef production medicine, large animal medicine, and pharmacology courses. His research interests include infectious disease, antibiotic efficacy and resistance, drug residues, and applications of drugs in food animals. In 2016, he and collaborators started a five-year study funded by the FDA which focuses on quantifying antibiotic use in feedlots and dairies.
Dr. Michael T. Meyer, Ph.D.
Dr. Michael T. Meyer received a B.S. in Geology from Western Illinois University in 1982 and a master’s degree and Ph.D. in Geology from the University of Kansas in 1987 and 1994, respectively. He has served as a research assistant and research scientist with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) since 1988.
Meyer was the Chief Research Scientist of the USGS, Florida District, Water Quality and Research Laboratory from 2000 to 2003 and is currently the director of the USGS, Kansas District Organic Geochemistry Research Laboratory. The focus of his research is development of analytical methods to study the nature of organic contaminants in surface water and ground water. His primary interest is the study of “emerging contaminants,” such as pesticide degradates and pharmaceutical compounds. Dr. Meyer has initiated and participated in several field, watershed, regional and national scale studies of selected “emerging organic contaminants” in surface and ground water.
Collectively, these studies have had an impact on understanding of the occurrence, fate and geochemical transport processes of organic compounds that are not routinely measured. Much of his research has demonstrated that antibiotics are transported into surface and ground water from urban and agricultural sources.
His collaborative efforts with a team of USGS scientists provided the first published documentation on the national occurrence of a wide variety of hormones, pharmaceuticals, and personal care products, and other wastewater contaminants that were found in surface waters throughout the United States in 2002. This article received the USGS Shoemaker Award for Product Excellence in 2003. Mike and his coauthors also received the Rudolph Hering Medal from the American Society of Civil Engineers in 2003 for the most significant paper in environmental engineering, which focused on removal of antibiotics from water through conventional drinking-water processes.
