Amy LeBoeuf’s young son contracted Bartellosis from a cat scratch, and her search for medical care led her to found an NGO in Louisiana that educates people about zoonoses – diseases that are transmitted between animals and people. Her search created a friendship with Amanda Elam, the founder and CEO of Galaxy Diagnostics, a company that specializes in diagnosing zoonoses. This is the main topic covered by One Health, the new medical/veterinary/environmental discipline that studies the interaction among these sources of disease.
