The new initiative will teach medical, providers to test for and treat the disease. Dr. Chad Smelser, medical epidemiologist for the Depart- ment of Health, said re'cent assess- ments have shown that the fun- gus called Coccidioides is preva- lent in Chihuahuan desert soils and is spread by wind storms. The fungus can cause Valley Fe- ver, which can cause pneumonia, encephalitis, skin rashes and tu- mors. "Medical providers in New Mexico right now are not look- ing for the disease, and we think the disease is more arevalent than is reported," Dr. Smelser said. "It's important for the Department of Health to keep our medical com- munity up-to-date on the latest information about the disease so they can test for it and report new cases to the Department." In 2009 Arizona reported more than 10,000 cases of the dis- ease, while New Mexico reports only 40-60 cases each year. Dr. Smelser said there are likely more cases in New Mexico and the number of cases reported each LMSMay27- 28schedule Lordsburg Schools' student schedtde for May 27-28 is as fol- lows: Thursday, May 27 Breakfast & lunch will be served. 12.',30 Students dis- missed and bus runs .begin. Friday. May 28 Breakfast snack will be served. No lunch will be served. 11:15 Students dis- missed and bus' runs begin. (LHS 11:17) Students help us meet AYP by attending school EVERY day. year will increase once healthcare providers start testing for the dis- ease. To help medical providers better diagnose the disease, the Department of Health's Office of Border Health is holding training in Las Cruces on May 24 for more than 100 hea!thcare profession- als. The training will be con- ducted by experts on the disease from Arizona. "Most people who get the disease will recover without com- plications, but it can cause seri- ous illness and even death in people with compromised im- mune systems," Dr. Smelser said. ."Gathering more data on the prevalence of this lisease will help us better understand how environmental factors cause res- piratory illnesses in the state." In addition to the training for medical providers, the Depart- ment of Health is also conduct- ing an air quality study along the U.S. - Mexico Border to study the health effects of the spring wind storms. The goal of the research is to develop a better understanding of the sources of air quality contaminants, both natural and human-induced and how the weather affects the air quality. The air quality study is a joint project between the De- partment of Health and experts from the New Mexico Environ- ment Department, New Mexico State University, the University of Texas-E1 Paso, the Autono- mous University of Juarez and the Desert Research Institute.
