One Health: Understanding Threats to Wildlife and Human Health in North America
From avian influenza to SARS-CoV-2 to chronic wasting disease, there is no shortage of current threats to the health of our wildlife species across every biome and species, with many of these threats affecting agriculture and public health as well.
Join us for a discussion with Dr. Steve Osofsky, Dr. Krysten Schuler, and Dr. Jennifer Bloodgood of the Cornell Wildlife Health Center at the Cornell College of Veterinary Medicine. They will share their experiences from the field and the lab to illustrate how the health of wildlife and our own health are inextricably linked.
The Cornell Wildlife Health Center, with programs around the globe, strives to sustain a healthier world by developing and implementing proactive, science-based solutions to challenges at the interface of wildlife health, domestic animal health, human health and livelihoods, and the environment that supports us all. With its focus on North America, the Cornell Wildlife Health Lab promotes the health and long-term sustainability of wildlife populations by advancing scientific tools and sharing knowledge to protect and improve the health of native wildlife populations.
