Event description: 

A conversation with Yale faculty: facilitating a One Health perspective for transdisciplinary research on health across silos

November 11, 2021  3-4:30 pm

Moderated by Serap Aksoy, Professor of Epidemiology, Yale School of Public Health

The Provost’s Planetary Solutions Project encouraged ideas to advance transdisciplinary research and teaching on our campus. Join the panel discussion to hear short perspectives from Yale faculty on the importance of a One Health/Planetary health approach to addressing emerging health issues on a changing planet and training the next generation of health leaders. We will then converse with invited participants and the audience to identify gaps and opportunities for how best to bridge our knowledge across disciplines and schools at our campus.
