"One Health and the Oceans: The Integration of Marine Mammal, Human and Environmental Health in Practice," Gregory Bossart, chief veterinary office and veterinary pathologist at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta will speak on his investigations of aquatic species as sentinels for the effects of global climate change, ecosystem and human health.

Dr. Bossart has spent the last 30 years working in clinical domestic, marine mammal and avian medicine and wildlife pathology on a national and international basis.  He helped characterize the first viral disease in manatees and was responsible for developing the first immunohistochemical technique for diagnosing red tide poisoning in marine mammals and birds. He is particularly interested in the application of aquatic species as sentinels for the effects of global climate change, ecosystem and human health.

The One Health @ UGA Lectures Series aims to efforts at UGA and the Southeast focused on interdisciplinary teaching and learning, research, and outreach at the nexus of human, animal and ecological health.  It is supported by the BHSI Division of One Health.
