Mr. Emanuele spearheaded the founding of one of the three major programs of the Fremont Education Foundation which is named after him. The Guy Emanuele Sports Fund provides grants for students who face economic need so that they can participate in after-school high school and junior high school sports in Fremont's Unified School District. The GESF also awards grants to elementary schools for the boys and girls basketball leagues. A memorial is scheduled from 4:30 to 6 . January 23 at Logan High School's Guy Emanuele Jr. Pavilion, 1800 H St., Union City.
In order to treat cholera and quickly stem a potential outbreak, it is important to have a rapid and accurate diagnosis, particularly in countries with weak health systems and sanitation, which are the ones most vulnerable to outbreaks of the disease. Rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs) for cholera exist, but recent published evaluations show their accuracy is not optimal.
To that end, WHO has developed a target product profile, describing the type of assays and their key attributes that are needed in the efforts to detect a cholera outbreak. The target product profile can be used in development of a new diagnostic assay as it provides a clear and tangible vision and focus for product development.
