    December 7, 2016, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ Burnham Room

    The animals around us experience many of the same diseases as human beings, from breast cancer to heart disease, from arthritis to obesity. What can we learn from these shared medical problems? In addition, many emerging infectious diseases, such as Lyme disease and Ebola, originate in animal species and spread to humans, often because of human impacts on natural ecosystems. We will discuss the parallels and intersections between the health of our animals and human health. Dr. Ruth Blauwiekel is a resident of Colchester and works as the University Veterinarian at UVM. She is a member of the One Health Committee of the Vermont Veterinary Medical Association.
