Welcome to Mindwalk Consulting Group
We provide integrated, multi-disciplinary solutions to some of today's most pressing infectious disease challenges. Some of the approaches we employ include:
- System dynamics modeling
- Quantitative risk assessment
- Molecular epidemiology
We have expertise in several areas including antimicrobial resistance, food safety, emerging pathogens, scientific writing, and grant preparation.
We are actively working on several projects related to antimicrobial use and resistance, quantitative risk assessment, food safety, and animal health and welfare.
The first report for our Estimates of On-Farm Antimicrobial Usage project is now available for U.S. broiler chickens and turkeys. This project was supported by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association. We collected data from the majority of U.S. broiler chicken and turkey companies regarding their use of antimicrobials. The report includes information about the diseases for which the antimicrobials were used. Data in this report cover the period of 2013-2017, and for 2017, the data represent more than 90% of U.S. broiler chicken production and more than 80% of U.S. turkey production.
Thank you for your interest! We are pleased to receive inquiries from potential collaborators, journalists, and those with questions about our research.
