Migrations and One Health: Human, Animal, and Environmental Interactions and Emerging Diseases

Wednesday, October 21, 2020 at 3:00pm to 4:30pm

Virtual Event

Cornell Public Health faculty are convening a series of working meetings with students and researchers from Cornell peer institutions to explore the conditions that allow for emerging communicable diseases. Grounded in One Health and Planetary Health paradigms (how humans interact with, influence, and are influenced by our natural environments, including the health of animals), the team is using outbreak case studies of the past and present to understand root causes, and to develop shared recommendations and action plans for the future that consider intersecting factors such as wildlife trade and management, food system drivers and consequences, cultural norms, public health and regulatory systems, and multi-national systems strengthening opportunities.
