About the Keynote

Jeff Wyatt Portrait
Jeff Wyatt DVM, MPH, DACLAM, Environmental Justice Advocate – Seneca Park Zoo; Professor and Chair of Comparative Medicine, University of Rochester. Prof. Wyatt will discuss an interdisciplinary, collaborative and successful approach to promoting ecosystem (human, environmental, and animal) health.
“Since 2013, a Canadian veterinary colleague, Dr. Andrew Winterborn, and I have made several visits mentoring goat and cattle herd health best and sustainable practices for widows and farmers participating in ASRI’s agricultural programs. The resultant herd health and productivity outcome metrics are impressive. As a board member, my priority is to raise public awareness and funds in support of Health In Harmony’s mission promoting ecosystem health demonstrating the connection between healthy people, animals, and environment.”
