The Jackson Laboratory has an-
nounced that its first medical part-
ner for the new research and edu-
cation village in Collier County will
be the University of South Florida,
one of the nation's fastest-growing
biomedical research universities.
Jackson and 11SF will collabo-
rate on a variety of initiatives to lead
the nation toward personalized
medicine, in which disease preven-
tion and treatment are based on a
person's unique genetic makeup,

for the citizens of Collier County
and Southwest Florida.
"Jackson is an ideal partner for
11SF," said Dr. Stephen Klasko, dean
of the 11SF College of Medicine and
CEO of 11SF Health, which con-
sists of 11SF's Colleges of Medicine,
Nursing and Public Health.
"The Laboratory's long stand-
ing expertise in inarnialian genet-
ics and its cutting-edge genornics
research are known around the
world," Dr. Klasko said. "We want
to give our students and residents
an education that will help then

laboration are limited only by our
own imaginations."
In turn, USF Health's strong re-
search environment and academic
entrepreneurial model will be as-
sets for Jackson, said Charles E.
Hewett, PhD, Jackson's vice presi-
dent and chief operating officer.

said. "Whether it's researching the
secrets of deadly diseases; help-
ing doctors join the electronic

In Collier County, a fourth horse,
within the past month, has fallen
victim to the mosquito-borne vi-
rus, Eastern Equine Encephalitis.
Of additional concern, in Hillsbor-
ough County where four horses
have died from Eastern Equine En-
cephalitis (EEE), a resident tragi-
cally died from Eastern Equine
Encephalitis in recent weeks.
EEE causes severe illness in
humans and horses. Syrnptons
in humans develop 3-10 days after
the bite of an infected mosquito
and begin with a sudden onset of
fever, general muscle pains, and
a headache of increasing severity.
Syrnptorns can becorne more se-
vere over 1-2 weeks and infected
individuals will either recover or
show onset of inflarnration of the

brain (encephalitis) with seizures
and vomiting.
Hurnan cases are usually pre-
ceded by those in horses. Disease
transmission does not occur direct-
ly from person to person. Those at
highest risk are people who live
in or visit woodland areas, people
who work or participate in out-
door work or recreational activities
where there is greater exposure to
potentially infected mosquitoes.
There are vaccines available for
use in horses in protecting then
against EEE, Western Equine En-
cephalitis (WEE), and West Nile
Encephalitis (WNV). Horse own-
ers should contact their veterinar-
ian about the appropriate use of
these vaccines. However, because
there are not vaccines for humans,

to develop continuing medical education
programs to help teach doctors and other
practicing health professionals about these
new areas of medicine.
Health will team with other health care or-
ganizations to develop a clinical campus
that will provide the latest in cutting-edge
personalized medicine and health care to
patients from Collier County and beyond.
USF already is creating new models to help
patients with chronic conditions live opti-
mistically. The partnership will be ideally
positioned to provide personalized medi-
cine across a continuum of care, from home
therapies to outpatient and inpatient ser-
Those initiatives will further increase the
economic impact of the research and educa-
tion village planned for eastern Collier Coun-
ty. An economic analysis performed by the
Washington Economic Group predicts that
within 10 years, the research and education
village will generate 7,500 jobs and $500 mil-
lion in annual economic activity in cumula-
tive economic impact in Collier County -and
even more across the southwestern Florida
region. The partnership with USF Health will
accelerate these economic benefits.
"Collier County's vision of building a
biomedical cluster, and its determination to
become a key player in the biomedical revo-
lution are very powerful incentives for USF
Health to act now," said Dr. Klasko.
Noting that Edison State College has al-
ready committed to creating a charter high
school in the research and education vil-
lage, Dr. Hewett said "There will be many
more announcements like this one. We look
forward to welcoming scientific, educa-
tional and medical partners from around the

world. We will also see a growing number
of commercial ventures locating here."
-The Jackson Laboratory -
The Jackson Laboratory (www.jax.org)
is an independent, nonprofit biomedical
research institution based in Bar Harbor,
Maine, with a facility in Sacramento, Calif.
The Laboratory was founded in 1929 and it
employs about 1300 people. Known inter-
nationally for its leadership in mammalian

genetics, its mission is to discover the ge-
netic basis for preventing, treating and cur-
ing human diseases, and to enable research
and education for the global biomedical
community. Its 38 research teams study the
genetic basis of cancers, heart disease, os-
teoporosis, Alzheimer's disease, glaucoma,
diabetes and many other diseases and dis-
orders, as well as how genes affect normal
development, reproduction, and aging.

Dress -- Wear clothing thlat covers most
of your skin.
SDEET -- When the potential exists for
exposure to mosquitoes, repellents contain-
ing DEET (N,N-diethyl-meta-toluamide, or
N,N-diethyl-3-methylbenzamide) are recom-
mended. Picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus,
and IR3535 are other repellent options. Al-
ways read label directions carefully for the
approved usage before you apply a repel-
lent. Some repellents are not suitable for
SDrainage -- Check around your home
to rid the area of standing water, which is
where mosquitoes can lay their eggs.
Tips on Eliminating Mosquito Production

SClean out eaves, troughs and gutters.
Remove old tires or drill holes in those
used in playgrounds to drain.
STurn over or remove empty plastic
SPick up all beverage containers and
cups. Check tarps on boats or other equip-
ment that may collect water.
SPump out bilges on boats.
SReplace water in birdbaths and pet or
other animal feeding dishes at least once a

hanging plants, at least once a week.
SRemove vegetation or obstructions in
drainage ditches that prevent the flow of

fects diminished. That's what Jackson and
USF will hope to deliver.
"For physicians and patients to make
knowledgeable decisions in the era of per-
sonalized medicine, they must be able to
access and understand the complex genetic
basis of health, disease and medicine," Dr.
Klasko said. "Working together, The Jackson
Laboratory and USF have the expertise, ex-
perience, leadership and medical and scien-
tific connections to be the definitive source
of information on the role of genomics in
human health and disease."
Jackson and USF plan to collaborate in
three key areas: research, education and
clinical care.
*RESEARCH. Jackson and USF research-
ers will collaborate on work in such endeav-
ors as computational biology and bioinfor-
matics; cancer; Alzheimer's disease and the
neuroscience; metabolic diseases; and a
host of other diseases. Researchers and cli-
nicians will work together to bring the lat-
est discoveries into clinical practice, with an
emphasis on new medicine that is tailored
to respond to the individual.
*EDUCATION. Advancing technologies
demand a different kind of education for the
next generation of healthcare professionals.
USF Health and Jackson are leaders in medi-
cal and scientific education. The partnership
will lead the way in educating students in
medicine, nursing, pharmacy and emerging
health professions in the areas of personal-
ized health, pharmacogenomics, and bio-
informatics. The partnership also expects

visitors to take precautions to avoid being
bitten by mosquitoes. Because mosquito
control treatments cannot eliminate all mos-
quitoes, everyone is encouraged to take the
basic steps to limit exposure by following
these recommendations:
To protect yourself from mosquitoes, you
should remember the "5Ds":
SDusk and Dawn -- Avoid being outdoors
when mosquitoes are seeking blood. For
many species, this is during the dusk and
dawn hours.

A heartfelt goodbye!
This is a goodbye to the people of
Immokalee. Even though my ancestors

emokea een~ irm epople e t uy love t eof
and have the fondest memories that will
never be taken away. Unfortunately, the in-
creasing government rules and regulations
forced me to give up and joing an existing
clinic in Brownsville, Texas. Many of you
have expressed your sadness while other,
their excitement telling me that they have
relatives in Brownsville and cannot wait to
tell them about me. Looking back, I cannot
help but wonder how God has blessed me
as I do not deserve any of this. I am over-
whelmed by your kindness. I thank you for
all of these.
Iam very humbled to know how the
people of Immokalee reached out to me

two years ago when I had cancer. I was
only given three months to live, but God in
His goodness, has cured me of my illness.
Thank you for your prayer !tiyrfeto f
Jesus. I hope, I did in some way as I know
many Immokaleeans who did, and with
their lives are bringing Christ to your com-
People of Immokalee, please forgive me
if I have wronged any of you. I am very sorry
if I did and only wish that I may learn from
this and be a better human being a better
doctor and a better Christian
Thank you Immokalee. Thank you for
the twenty years! Goodbye! Adios! Mali! Kila!

Sincerely yours in Christ,

The program is made up of three primary
(Kindergarten through 2nd grade) classes
known as SPRINKLES and four intermedi-
ate (3rd through 5th grade) classes referred
to as WATER DROPS. In addition to a read-

Immokalee Bulletin

The Collier County Sheriff's Office is pre-
paring for a big "Night" on the town.
On Tuesday, Aug. 3, CCSO will join forces
with neighborhoods and communities across
Collier County for the 27th annual National
Night Out.
National Night Out is designed to heighten
crime and drug prevention awareness; gen-
erate support for, and participation in, local

anti-crime efforts; strengthen neighborhood
spirit and police-community partnerships;
and send a message to criminals letting them
know neighborhoods are organized and
fighting back.
CCSO is celebrating the fight against crime
by hosting free events and activities that bring
neighborhoods, communities, businesses,
and law enforcement together. There will be

an array of CCSO displays, demonstrations
and information. There will also be safety fes-
tivals at community parks and other locales,
cookouts, lemonade stands, bounce houses,
beach ball giveaways, bike raffles, as well as
appearances by McGruff the Crime Dog and
Red E. Fox, and more.
In addition to the various CCSO safety
celebrations, deputies will join Community
Safety Teams in neighborhood patrols and
walks, holding candles and flashlights and
distributing safety information.
Here's look at CCSO events and activities
planned for Tuesday, Aug. 3, in Immokalee:
Safetyfest, under the pavilion at Immokalee

Community Park, 321 N. 1st St., from 6 to
8 p.m. Deputies will discuss safety tips for
bicyclists and pedestrians as well as other
crime prevention topics. Deputies will install
bicycle safety lights and provide bike helmets
as needed. McGruff the Crime Dog will be on
hand to talk to kids about what to do if ap-
proached by a stranger. Representatives from
the National Center For Missing & Exploited
Children will offer child fingerprinting and
child ID kits. Firefighters from the Immokalee
Fire Department will conduct demonstrations
and discuss fire safety. A new bike will be
raffled off. The event will also feature a child
bike rodeo and free food and refreshments.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC) is offering alligator
hunters no-cost, three-hour classes to help
them prepare for the Aug. 15-Nov. 1 state-
wide alligator harvest. Reservations are not
required to attend a class.
Attendance is not mandatory for li-
censed hunters, but the FWC recommends
that participants attend, especially if they

yest permit can attend if they want to learn
what hunting alligators is all about.
