Outbreaks from diseases like Ebola and MERS remind us that human health is intricately connected to our natural environment and the animals that share it.

In the July session of Hot Topics in Practice, Peter Rabinowitz, MD, MPH, discusses the “one health” framework for connecting human, animal, and environmental health to address emerging disease challenges. He will review the “one health” model for integrated disease surveillance and control, and describe recent efforts to apply this approach to public health problems in the Pacific Northwest. Case examples will include avian flu and valley fever outbreaks in the region, as well as the challenge of antibiotic resistance.

Register now to explore a transdisciplinary approach to understanding and preventing emerging epidemics.
