"The way we interact with the environment has profound impacts not only on the health of our planet, but also on human health – put simply, human health cannot exist without environmental health. A One Health approach is critical to better understanding the complex relationship between the environment and people, which will ultimately help us prevent health challenges and disease threats. Let's work together to create a healthier future for everyone and everything – and let's have fun doing it!"
Alice is the Program Manager at EcoHealth Alliance for the One Health Workforce – Next Generation Project, which seeks to transform and enhance the capacity of workforces to more effectively engage across sectors to prevent, detect, and respond to emerging disease threats. Through this project, and other projects in the future, Alice aims to support global capacity building efforts to empower those working in this space to better prepare for health challenges.
Alice is particularly interested in the human and environmental health nexus and, as such, she obtained a Master’s degree in Climate & Society from Columbia University where she focused on the impacts of climate change on public health. Prior to joining EcoHealth Alliance, Alice worked on the Modelling Early Risk Indicators to Anticipate Malnutrition project, funded by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office, which developed and tested models to improve the prediction and monitoring of undernutrition in countries that experience frequent climate- and conflict-related shocks.
