Meggan Craft, PhD, associate professor in the Department of Veterinary Population Medicine is collaborating with Eva Enns, PhD, associate professor in the Division of Health Policy and Management in the School of Public Health, to create a model of how the novel coronavirus moves through an individual’s network.

Transmission models of COVID-19 are used by policymakers and hospital leaders to inform disease prevention and mitigation activities and prepare for case surges.

We are dedicated to improving the health and well-being of animals and people, and strengthening Minnesota's economy, by providing high-quality education, conducting leading-edge research, and delivering innovative veterinary services.
