Please join the Maine GIS User Group (MEGUG) *Tuesday October 13th *at noon
as we welcome Dr. Meghan May PhD of The University of New England for a
virtual lunch & learn event!

Professor May will present a talk entitled: *Clinical and Epidemiological
Insights into the COVID-19 Pandemic from Geospatial Science*   The novel
Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 virus causes the multi-system illness COronaVIrus
Disease 2019 (COVID-19), and was first detected in Wuhan, Hubei Province,
China. COVID-19 cases rose to epidemic proportions in Eastern China in
December 2019, and expanded into a global pandemic in the early months of
2020. Emerging disease epidemics are often characterized at first by a
paucity of information about the disease course, transmission dynamics, and
basic biology of the novel pathogens, and discoveries frequently come from
additional disciplines outside of clinical medicine. In this webinar,
clinical and epidemiological insights into the COVID-19 pandemic stemming
from geospatial sciences will be discussed.

*Clinical and Epidemiological Insights into the COVID-19 Pandemic from
Geospatial Science  *

A Discussion on the Issues with Mapping and Tracking COVID 19 Data
with Meghan A. May PhD Professor - Microbiology and Infectious Diseases,
UNE College of Osteopathic Medicine
Tuesday October 13th a noon eastern.

About the speaker:

*Dr. Meghan May, Professor of Biomedical Sciences (Microbiology and
Infectious Disease)*

Dr. May was appointed in the Department of Biomedical Sciences at the
University of New England College of Medicine in 2013.  She was previously
appointed in the Department of Biological Sciences at Towson University
from 2010-2013 (holding the Fisher Endowed Chair of Biological Sciences
from 2012-2013) and was appointed as a postdoctoral fellow and then a
research assistant professor in the Department of Infectious Diseases and
Pathology at the University of Florida 's Emerging Pathogens Institute. Dr.
May earned her B.S. degree in Microbiology from the University of New
Hampshire, and her M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Pathobiology and Bacteriology
(respectively) from the University of Connecticut.  Her research focus is
on pathogen evolution and emerging diseases, and involves bacteria,
parasites, and viruses.  She also studies the role in the microbiome in
protecting against infection, pharmaceutically-induced immune dysregulation
and infection susceptibility, infection-mediated pain, and works up unusual
clinical ID cases involving novel infectious agents.  Dr. May contributes
pieces to local and national print, radio, and television media on
infectious diseases, and has authored 48 peer-reviewed publications, 15
invited book chapters, and has given several platform presentations at
national and international meetings.
