Lauren Howard has to remind herself not to shout herpes in a crowded room
It’s not easy to do, having spent so much of her time discussing EEHV, or elephant endotheliotropic herpesvirus. Lauren recently spearheaded an international workshop on elephant endotheliotropic herpesvirus, a virus that causes fatal hemorrhagic disease in elephants. Over 70 participants from 6 countries, including veterinarians, elephant care specialists, virologists, immunologists, and administrators, traveled to Houston for a 2 day workshop focused on better understanding, diagnosing and treating EEHV, which is the single greatest cause of death in young Asian elephants in North America.
