For ten years, the Center for Global Health and Social Responsibility (CGHSR) has served as a connector across the health sciences at the University of Minnesota. Dubbed “sister centers,” CAHFS and CGHSR work together to synergize their activities and build an interdisciplinary network.
This spring, CAHFS worked with the Minnesota Center for Prion Research and Outreach to create a booklet on chronic wasting disease transmission in deer. Artist and illustrator Pa Gar Vang spoke with CAHFS about her designs for this project.
As government officials around the world have been using “expert models” to determine the next course of action in the COVID-19 pandemic, CAHFS Summer Scholars have been learning to think critically about what meaningful information disease outbreak models can actually provide.
CAHFS has served as a collaborating center of the World Organisation for Animal Health since 2006, supporting the sustainable development of communities, countries, and regions around the topic of animal health and disease control.
A team of researchers at the CVM recently published a perspective in Frontiers in Veterinary Science on the process of using risk maps and risk regionalization as tools to inform actionable decisions through stakeholder engagement
CAHFS has released our 2019 annual report, sharing details on our projects, activities, and successes in the past year.
The Minnesota Department of Health and CAHFS team up for a webinar series to explore the impact Minnesota’s ticks and mosquitos have on human, environmental, and animal health.
