Medical and veterinary entomology in the news! Find an on-line news article published on or after Jan 1, 2018 that is relevant to a direct, negative impact that insects or arachnids have on human and/or animal health (preferably a story published in a major news or media outlet; e.g., New York Times, CNN.com) and uses hyperlinks (Links to an external site.)within the main text of the article (see example below). Read this news article (referred to below as the ‘original’ story ), click on a hyperlink of interest within the story (one that is relevant to the content of the story; i.e., don’t click on an advertisement), and see where it takes you (referred to below as the destination site).
Please note that news articles that were included as an assigned reading for one of the modules are not eligible. If you are not sure whether a particular news story is relevant then please send it to your instructor for review. Articles should be focused on a direct negative impact of an insect or arachnid on human or animal health. Articles about agricultural pests that affect human or animal food supplies are not relevant because the direct impact of the insect or arachnid is on plant health.
