The Swine Health Information Center (SHIC) has joined the Global Infectious Disease Intelligence Consortium

Based in Ames, IA, SHIC works with pork producers, academic institutions, and government agencies to protect and increase the health of the United States swine herd through targeted research investments, an awareness of emerging viral and bacterial spillover disease threats, and an analysis of swine health data. SHIC was established in 2015 by the National Pork Board, in response to the porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV) outbreak in the United States. SHIC is guided by its director, Dr. Paul Sundberg, and a board of directors that includes swine industry executives and veterinarians, and professionals associated with affiliated industries, trade organizations, and universities.

“We are delighted to have SHIC as a member,” said Dr. John Drake, Director of GIDIC.  “This is an excellent opportunity for us to learn about the industry, and to collaboratively develop strategies to identify future risks of infectious disease spillover into hogs, an important part of our food supply and food security.”

SHIC’s interactive website has a wealth of information about swine related diseases that include newsletters, podcasts, and special reports. To learn more about SHIC and their collaboration with GIDIC, contact Dr. John Drake at jdrake@uga.edu.
