For students and researchers in a variety of biological sciences, One Health is where many may first encounter entomology. And, conversely, entomologists working in One Health find their work intersects with a host of other fields within public health. One recent Ph.D. graduate shares her experience discovering entomology through her work in vector-borne and zoonotic diseases.
Meet Eno Wang, an eighth grader and aspiring entomologist whose move from China to California has been aided by an international support program that aims to foster his affinity for insect science.
Getting people excited about insect science and inspiring the next generation of entomologists are worthy goals on their own, but leading education and outreach programs can be a valuable professional experience for any entomology student, as well. One entomology master's student shares her experience and advice on getting involved in community education and outreach.
Meet Jacqueline Serrano, Ph.D., entomologist and chemical ecologist at the USDA Agricultural Research Service and subject of the next installment of our "Standout Early Career Professionals" series.
As entomology students learn their science, they also must learn to navigate their profession. Opportunities abound for volunteering, engagement, and networking through the Entomological Society of America.
