Why do infectious diseases emerge where they do? What makes them spread so quickly? Where do we look for the next one? Our planet is connected more than ever before: by global travel, trade, technology - and as the current COVID-19 pandemic has shown us - even our viruses. Explore the connections between human, animal, environmental health and outbreaks; see how epidemic-fighters around the globe predict, track and fight epidemics; learn about past outbreaks that have affected the Greater Houston Area; and engage in games that challenge you to identify and contain an outbreak. This is a great opportunity to provide a context for understanding the current pandemic.
