Veterinary medicine and human medicine intersect in many ways, one of which is in the evolution of infectious diseases over time. As diseases make their way from animals to humans, and in some cases, vice versa, the entire ecosystem can be affected. Dr. Jim Wellehan, a zoological medicine and infectious disease specialist, will discuss some of the interrelationships between diseases in different species and the impacts of climate change and population density on disease.
