    Episode 24: Pesticide Resistant Mosquitos and Dinosaur Discovery. Special Guest: Daniel Williamson

    One Health Wednesdays highlights work in One Health to encourage awareness, solutions, and professional development. Daniel Williamson is an infectious disease epidemiologist and medical entomologist who has focused his work and research on researching and surveilling mosquito-borne diseases. He discusses how he became intrigued with microbiology and pathogens and has fulfilled both of his childhood dreams of discovering a dinosaur and working with infectious diseases. Daniel highlights how his research has reinforced the principles of One Health and AMR, even detailing mosquito life cycles and how pesticide-resistance mutations occur. He continues to develop surveillance and prevention in mosquito- and vector-borne diseases through his partnership company, Arbo Scientific, and through his research with the University of Arizona, all while supporting local public health in Arizona.

    Episode 23: There is no "I" in One Health. Special Guest: Hayley Yaglom

    One Health Wednesdays highlights work in One Health to encourage awareness, solutions, and professional development. Hayley Yaglom is a One Health Genomics Epidemiologist who started in One Health from a young age before she even knew it was One Health. She talks about her path into One Health, starting with exploring the science behind the human-animal bond at the University of Missouri, working with vector-borne and zoonotic disease with the Arizona Department of Health Services, and now her work in One Health Genomic Epidemiology with TGen. Hayley explores examples of One Health including approaches to rabies prevention and response, plague and prairie dogs, West Nile virus and other mosquito-borne diseases, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and coordinating interdisciplinary responses with Tribal Nations, and surveillance for SARS-CoV-2 in companion animals and wildlife. She advocates for partnerships and collaborative work, recently promoting this in the Southwest One Health Collaborative Symposium, recently held November 2022.
