The Daniel E. Salmon Scholarship supports non-veterinary students to work with the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service Veterinary Services (APHIS-VS) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. As a scholarship recipient, Eric will work with the APHIS-VS Sheep, Goat, Equine and Cervid Health Center to manage endemic and emerging livestock diseases and diseases in wildlife that impact livestock and to analyze and respond to animal health emergencies. This collaboration will build upon Eric's research on livestock movements, disease-related decision making, and land-use planning.
