One Health Conversation with Dr. Jenifer Chatfield


Dr. Jenifer Chatfield discusses the notion of one health and zoonotic disease on the national Steve Dale’s Pet World radio show. These terms, always known in veterinary medicine, have now popped into the popular press as a result of the pandemic.
