Tufts University’s Environmental Studies, International Relations & Community Health Programs jointly brought you this event.

Amidst the extensive media coverage and increasing public alarm, it is important for all of us to be accurately informed about the situation regarding the current Ebola outbreak in West Africa. This international health emergency will require a multi-national and multi-disciplinary response. This crisis epitomizes the inextricable linkages between human, animal, and environmental health — an approach referred to as “One Health”. At Tufts, we are uniquely positioned to contribute to a One Health response and research agenda, given the constellation of schools and departments that span the humanities, social sciences, human and veterinary medicine, and environmental sciences.
