Join us at the Ecological Levers for Health State of the Science Summit during this year's Ecology and Evolution of Infectious Disease Annual Meeting (EEID). Speakers will consider pressing public health and conservation problems and how ecological approaches can help find joint solutions.

This session is sponsored by the Science for Nature and People Partnerhsip (SNAPP). The session and the subsequent Stanford-sponsored social event kick off a SNAPP Levers for Health working group.
