Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI)
HPIA was recently detected in chickens in Utah. Although it is not a danger to humans, it is very contagious and lethal in chickens. Infected wild waterfowl primarily spread the virus as they migrate and encounter open water sources and domestic waterfowl and poultry. Close contact with infected flock mates and contaminated water sources is the most likely infection source for backyard poultry. Avian influenza poses a significant danger to both backyard poultry and commercial operations in Utah.

Blanca

New Create Better Health Ambassador

USU Extension recently hired Blanca Gohary as a Create Better Health Ambassador. She will provide nutrition, cooking, and physical activity education to low-income individuals and families eligible for SNAP benefits. Blanca will also help Summit and Wasatch County residents increase their access to nutritious food.
 
Blanca was born in Jalisco, Mexico, and raised in San Francisco, CA.  She attended the University of California, Santa Barbara, and also completed a summer extension program at the University of California, Berkely. She graduated with honors with a B. A. in English Literature and a minor in French. Blanca made great use of her French by studying a semester abroad in Bordeaux, France, and backpacked for five months throughout Europe while there.
 
Her love of food, culture, and language have continued as passions. She has an extensive background in the Food and Beverage Industry. Her entrepreneurial spirit led her to open her own restaurant in Park City, Utah, and she also founded an artisan food line. That unique foodpreneur experience brought her in contact with the University of Utah in Logan. She worked with Department Staff to become HACCP certified and develop nutrition labels for her food line to meet FDA requirements.
 
Blanca has made use of her Spanish to help the Hispanic Community through her career opportunities and volunteerism. She currently also holds a license in Life & Health Insurance and services English as well as Spanish speaking clients to protect them and their loved ones with financial and advanced market products. Blanca’s other passions also include helping others with their financial health.
 
When Blanca is not busy working, she enjoys trail running, hiking, traveling, and cooking great healthy meals for her family and friends.
