One Health Circle: Confronting monkeypox

September 28, 2022

7:00 - 8:00pm MT

As the monkeypox epidemic continues to unfurl we will learn about the biology, epidemiology, and clinical picture associated with monkeypox infections. A successful monkeypox response will rely on a variety of public health measures including public health education. We will discuss how a global One Health approach to prevention and treatment, that is sensitive and respectful to the most at-risk populations, will be necessary to control the current and future outbreaks.

Dr. Craig Jenne (Canada Research Chair in Imaging Approaches Towards Studying Infection, Cumming School of Medicine, UCalgary) will describe the monkeypox virus and the clinical disease. He will also discuss how the disease is currently being managed in affected patients and by public health. 

Dr. Sean Hillier (Associate Director Centre for Indigenous Knowledges and Languages, York Research Chair in Indigenous Health Policy and One Health) will speak to the importance of careful public health messaging to promote prevention of infection among the highest risk groups while avoiding stigmatization of the 2SLGBTQ community.

Co-hosted by One Health at UCalgary and the Centre for Indigenous Knowledges and Languages (CIKL).
