I'm Gideon Erkenswick. I got my first job serving burgers at Johnny Rockets and today I screen wild primates for exotic diseases. ASK ME ANYTHING.
Gideon Erkenswick Watsa got his first job serving burgers at Johnny Rockets, got a degree in sociology, and biked alone from San Francisco to Chicago without a cell phone. Today he screens South American monkeys for diseases like malaria, leptospirosis, trypanomiasis, and filariasis. How did he get to where he is, and what does being a monkey health monitor even entail? Find out in this Ask Me Anything session, and check out the field courses he is teaching for FPI (Primates to Predators in India and Conservation in Action at the Osa Peninsula).
