Board trustee

Dr. Jonna Mazet, a professor at the University of California, Davis, and director of the school’s One Health Institute, is dedicated to protecting the lives of all animals. As a veterinarian and wildlife epidemiologist, she is on the front lines of emerging diseases that can threaten so many animal species, including marine animals that are particularly sensitive to their environment and climate change. At Morris Animal Foundation, she is able to combine her expertise with the means possible to advance animal health studies that can have a true impact in the natural world. The relationship between animals and humans is complicated, “but we have the ability to make the world a better place for them, and that is what the foundation is all about.”
