Hunting and

Health

Linking wildlife hunting and human health for food, environmental, and global health security 

The RISK Lab studies the anthropology of human health risks. We are interested in how humans balance health-related biological and social risks on a daily basis and in potentially complex ways. Much of our work centers on nutrition and infectious disease trade-offs of human-animal-environment interactions using the concept of One Health. A fundamental goal of our research is to identify "win-wins" for environmental, food and global health security and to identify and test evidence and community-based solutions that meet the needs of people locally.
