Talk by Visiting Bat Biologist

Dr.  Amy Turmelle visited our campus and spoke to our students about her recent research and experiences working with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) out of Atlanta.  In the past couple years, she has traveled with a team of scientists to 5 countries to study and test both people and wildlife for transmissible diseases.  This collaborative approach between ecologists, public health officials, veterinarians, epidemiologists, and more, is what she describes as the emerging “One Health” approach to studying emerging infectious diseases.
