Stanley Maloy (@Typhi) One Health: People, Animals, and Environment New infectious diseases are arising at an alarming frequency. Where do these new diseases come from and why? The answer is surprisingly simple – most new human diseases are transmitted from animals, often following disruption of the environment. Although the health of humans, animals, and the environment are tightly interconnected, medical practices rarely recognize these linkages. "One Health" integrates these three areas to develop upstream approaches to prevent disease.

Jenni Vanos (@JenniVanos) Heat, Health, and Staying Cooling in Hot Cities Human biometeorology, the study of the effects of weather on human health, is growing in importance in this era of urbanization and climate change. Dr. Jennifer Vanos, Assistant Professor in Climate and Human Health at UC San Diego, specializes in weather’s effects on people, with emphasis on those being activities outdoors in hot weather. Her work is a marriage of two of her abiding passions; weather and sports. Dr. Vanos will address topics at the intersection of health, weather, physiology.
