Minutet Nima, MSc, DVM
Research Assistant, Planetary Health
Minutet Nima is a 4th year student at York University in Global Health. Minutet holds a DVM from Havana University, Cuba, and an MSc from Liverpool University, UK. In Ethiopia, she worked in the Animal Health Service (Ministry of Agriculture) and the Southern Rift Valley Tsetse Fly Eradication Program. She saw that animals are not only sources of food and income for humans, but also of disease, catalysing Minutet’s interest in Global Health. Increased human activity and environmental degradation has meant animal to human disease transfer is also increasing. Minutet hopes to explore these relationships between human, animal and environmental health as well as the collective impacts of human health and sustainable development.
