Bellwether Sessions - Reflections on Shelter Medicine and Community Engagement in the Time of COVID-19


American life is “fundamentally reordered” due to COVID-19 - affecting everything from family life, to how we eat, to how we care for animals.

The Shelter Medicine Program at Penn Vet is approaching this protracted crisis through a framework encompassing evidence-based strategies and processes. This approach allows for a deeper examination of the relationship between human, animal, and public health.

In this webinar, Penn Vet’s Shelter Medicine team tackles important questions:

  • responding in an emergency
  • engaging safely with the community
  • exchanging critical scientific information
  • adapting to the present pandemic

Join our speakers as they share insights on evidence-based medicine and decision making that could contribute to protecting and responding to animal health and welfare challenges in different communities.
