Zoobiquity: connecting the health of humans and animals

Have we forgotten that people are animals too? Barbara Natterson-Horowitz is a Professor of Medicine in the Division of Cardiology at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA in the United States. In addition to patient care, she is actively involved with medical education and research. Kathryn Bowers is a Fellow at the New America Foundation in Washington, D.C and an experienced journalist, editor, writer, producer and teacher of writing at UCLA. In 2012, they co-authored the New York Times bestselling book, Zoobiquity: The Astonishing Connection Between Human and Animal Health. In this episode we talk about how they entered this field of one health, and what they researched to connect the physical and mental health of humans and animals.
