In April 2006, she published Confronting Zoonoses, Linking Human and Veterinary Medicine in Emerging Infectious Diseases, which helped launch the One Health Initiative (www.onehealthinitiative.com). She is the author of Who's in Charge? Leadership during Epidemics, Bioterror Attacks, and Other Public Health Crises published in 2009 by Praeger Security International.

This spring, she is teaching the course, "Hogs, Bats, and Ebola: An Introduction to One Health policy," that she developed for Princeton University freshmen.
