TIE Fellow 2017-2018: Abby Clayton

Abby Clayton, Doctor of Veterinary Medicine; Master of Public Health

As a dual-degree Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and Master of Public Health candidate, I am focused on One Health and conservation medicine issues – exploring the intersections of wildlife conservation, human and environmental health. Prior to graduate school, I worked in international advertising, working abroad managing global communications work for various populations. I have channeled my prior experience into health communications work, spending last summer in eastern Africa as a Communications Advisor on the USAID Emerging Pandemic Threats 2: One Health Workforce project – a capacity building project that prepares the future workforce to respond to emerging infectious diseases.
