Dr. Lonnie King is the new Director of the National Center for Zoonotic, Vector-Borne, and Enteric Diseases (proposed) at the CDC. Whether it is food safety, zoonotic diseases, environmental concerns, or regulatory medicine, veterinarians have the knowledge to positively contribute to human and animal health. The new Distance MPH Program for Practicing Veterinarians at the University of Iowa will provide the additional training to participate in one of the many roles Dr. King describes in his article.
