Next Meeting: January 12th, 2017 @ 6:30 pm

Dr. Jennie Lane, D.V.M., MPH


Dr. Lane will talk about:

"Livestock, Livelihoods & Human Nutrition: Village Chickens and Other Stories from Malawi"




Dr. Jennie Lane, is an Animal Health and Livelihoods Technical Advisor for Land O'Lakes International Development. She recently relocated to Washington DC after working for a year in Malawi with a USAID funded Livestock for Resilience. Jennie's current research focuses on better understanding the pathways of impact livestock transfer programs have on food security and nutrition at the household level, and the role of financial services in livestock development programming.

A native of upstate New York, Jennie graduated from Michigan State University, College of Veterinary Medicine in 2007 and spent six years practicing equine and small animal medicine in Pennsylvania and Delaware. Her work with working equines as a veterinarian in developing countries around the world, including the Dominican Republic, India, Peru, Mexico, Nicaragua, Montserrat, and Costa Rica, inspired her interest in better understanding the relationships between livestock health, livelihoods, and human health and nutrition. In May 2014, she received a Master of Public Health (MPH) degree with a global health concentration from the University of California, Berkeley. Her MPH research investigated the relationships between working equine health and human health and livelihoods in Nicaragua. Jennie is particularly interested in sustainable and collaborative interventions to improve livelihoods of the world’s poorest small holder farmers, and has a special love for working equines (horses, donkeys and mules). In her free time you can find Jennie unplugged in the wilderness, on a bicycle or sailing.
