Zoobiquity: A comparative discussion of human & veterinary medicine

February 25, 2013 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm

Joining forces with science journalist Kathryn Bowers, cardiologist Barbara Natterson-Horowitz, M.D., employs fascinating case studies and meticulous scholarship to present a revelatory understanding of what animals can teach us about the human body and mind. "Zoobiquity" is the term the authors have coined to refer to a new, species-spanning approach to health. Delving into evolution, anthropology, sociology, biology, veterinary science, and zoology, they break down the walls between disciplines, redefining the boundaries of medicine. Zoobiquity explores how animal and human commonality can be used to diagnose, treat, and heal patients of all species.

This event is open to students, faculty, and staff.
