Advanced Topics in Biological Anthropology I (Fall 2019)

Topic: EcoHealth/One Health and the Human-Primate Interface EcoHealth originates from understanding health in the context of ecosystems and One Health has its origins in the management of disease threats to humans and animals. Both approaches are based on the assumption that the health of humans, animals, and the environment are inextricably linked. This course highlights primate conservation through an EcoHealth/One Health approach. Students will leverage the interdisciplinary nature of anthropology to understand how EcoHealth and One Health approaches can be used to mitigate the looming conservation crisis facing non-human primates.
