Event Details

EcoHealthNet is an undergraduate- and graduate-level global research coordination network funded by the National Science Foundation and organized by EcoHealth Alliance, a nonprofit working at the intersection of animal, environmental, and human health on a global scale.

This year's workshop, "Emerging Threats to Global Health," is jointly hosted by George Mason University, the Smithsonian Institute, and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health from June 2-8. While participants have already been selected, those not attending the workshop itself can participate in two separate panel discussions featuring professional scientists and journalists at the top of their fields. These are two unique opportunities to hear from, connect with, and learn from industry professionals and other students interested in One Health careers.

EcoHealth Alliance

Building on over 45 years of groundbreaking science, EcoHealth Alliance is a global nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting wildlife, environmental, and public health from the emergence of disease. Approximately 60 percent of emerging infectious diseases like Ebola, HIV, Zika, SARS, MERS, and West Nile virus have all originated in animals before spilling over to human populations. Using environmental and health data covering the past 60 years, EcoHealth Alliance scientists created the first-ever global disease hotspots map that identified at-risk regions to determine where research and field work are needed to help predict and prevent the next pandemic crisis. That work is the foundation of EcoHealth Alliance's rigorous, science-based approach working in more than 30 countries worldwide. EcoHealth Alliance's strength is founded on innovations in research, training, global partnerships, capacity building, and policy initiatives.
