Data Center Description
The Center for Conservation Medicine (Tufts CCM) takes a unique
interdisciplinary approach to ecosystem health. Through the practice of
Conservation Medicine, Tufts CCM brings together veterinarians, physicians,
ecologists, and conservation professionals to develop education and research
activities that explore the relationships among animal, human, and
environmental health.

The Tufts Center for Conservation Medicine (TuftsCCM) addresses the health
relationships occurring at the interface of humans, animals, and the
environment, working to achieve overall ecosystem health. Human development,
population growth, and modern technologies inevitably lead to altered
landscapes, increased demands on limited resources, and decreased land, air and
water quality. The cumulative impact of these issues takes form as emerging
disease, species extinction, and health implications for wildlife, domestic
animals, and humans. Our work is designed with the ultimate goals of affecting
change toward a secure quality of life for all species and developing solutions
for humans to harmoniously and sustainably coexist with other species.
