Dr. Wendy Harrison & Dr. Gabby Laing (SCI): One Health

From Amherst Effective Altruism in Partnership with One for the World

Dr. Harrison and Dr. Laing join us to talk about the importance of 'one health,' where we consider animal and human health systems together-- especially relevant as most experts agree SARS-CoV-2 likely started in animals.

Harrison is CEO of Schistosomiasis Control Initiative (SCI) and a leading figure in public and animal health. Laing is an epidemiologist and SCI's One Health advisor. SCI is one of the most effective charities, working on deworming projects in Africa.
