    The Effects of Wildlife Loss and Land Use Change on Rodent-Borne Disease Risk in East Africa

    Deafunation and land use change in ecosystems, such as savannas, lead to a dramatic increase of rodents. Increased rodent abundance in turn increases abundance of vectors and pathogens responsible for human disease. Such correlations increase risks of human disease. Experimental manipulations and site comparisons are being employed to explore these connections.

    Service Learning in Migrant Health Med 159 »

    This course is designed to the foster examination and exploration of migrant health and to provide an opportunity for students to engage with community partners working on these issues at the local level. Weekly class sessions will expose students to concepts related to the process of program planning and evaluation; the health, economic and social issues of migrant populations in and around Pescadero, CA; and some of the current initiatives designed to meet the needs of migrant populations. This class will have a particular focus on the Mexican migrant populations in the Bay Area (Latino and indigenous), as these are the communities in which the structured service-learning will take place, through the design and implementation of a community health intervention. This course is open to graduate and undergraduate students. Students must have an intermediate/advanced level of Spanish language proficiency in order to work directly with migrant communities. Our main community partner is the Mountain View Day Workers Center. Now that the State Department has changed its Travel Warning to Mexico and Oaxaca travel is unrestricted, we are planning to reopen the summer field experience in Oaxaca.

    Projects: Forms of Global Health This is a project on the place of literature in the development of tropical medicine and global health as modern medical specialties. The book responds to recent calls recognizing literary influence in the evolution of public health conscience among readers in the nineteenth century -- particularly via the social reform novel -- and explores equivalent influences in contemporary forms of international health. A primary focus is on colonial literatures concerning Africa, their participation in the establishment of tropical medicine, and anticolonial ironizations of this process via novels emerging after the World War II and the formation of the World Health Organization.
