Equine Disease Researcher Cohen Recognized by Epidemiology Society

The American Veterinary Epidemiology Society recognized Noah Cohen, VMD, MPH, PhD, Dipl. ACVIM, professor of Large Animal Clinical Sciences at Texas A&M University's College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM), as an honorary diplomate at the annual convention of the American Veterinary Medical Association.

Cohen has been involved in epidemiology and infections disease research since receiving his PhD in epidemiology from Johns Hopkins University in 1988. He received his VMD from the University of Pennsylvania in 1983 and spent two years in private equine practice. After completing a residency at Texas A&M in 1991, Cohen was offered a position as assistant professor in equine internal medicine.

"This is a special honor for me because I have focused my epidemiology research efforts on horses," stated Cohen. "The prestige of being honored by an organization of such esteemed and accomplished members for work that is at the periphery of their mission is very gratifying."

Cohen has received numerous awards and honors throughout his career, the most recent of which was the 2008 Schering-Plough Animal Health Applied Equine Research Award that he received at the World Equine Veterinary Association congress in Moscow, Russia.

"Dr. Cohen has made significant contributions to equine medicine and the field of epidemiology," states H. Richard Adams, DVM, PhD, dean of veterinary medicine. "We are proud that he has been recognized for his accomplishments."

The American Veterinary Epidemiology Society principally focuses on the intersection of human and animal health.
