Dr. Andy Stringer joined the College of Veterinary Medicine, North Carolina State University in June 2015 and currently holds the position of Assistant Professor - Veterinary Global and Public Health. Dr. Stringer also holds positions as an Honorary Lecturer in International Animal Health at the Institute of Infection and Global Health, University of Liverpool; Board Chair, Triangle Global Health Consortium, and Board Trustee, and Chair of the Performance Committee for The Donkey Sanctuary.

Dr. Stringer graduated with a veterinary degree from the University of Liverpool in 2005 and has spent time volunteering for a veterinary charity in Morocco, completing an equine internship and in equine primary care practice. Dr. Stringer returned to the University of Liverpool in 2007 to study for a PhD focused on evaluating the efficacy of knowledge-transfer interventions for communicating animal health messages to rural farmers in Ethiopia using a large randomized controlled trial. Dr. Stringer joined a British non-governmental organization in 2010 as Director of Veterinary Programs where he was responsible for managing the organization’s global veterinary programs aimed at improving the health and welfare of working animals.

Dr. Stringer is the founder and principal investigator of the Health and Livelihoods (HEAL) group (www.healgroup.org). The HEAL Group studies a number of challenges focused on the interface of health and livelihoods in Ethiopia utilizing a One Health approach. We combine approaches from the biological and social sciences to understand the determinants of health and their relationships with livelihoods. Our goal is to understand the health constraints of both animals and people and to use this information to improve livelihoods through effective interventions.

The research sub-themes of the HEAL Group focus on: 1) The role of animal source foods (ASFs) in food security (and food safety) in Ethiopia, specifically, dairy products in urban communities and poultry products in rural communities; and 2) AMR, specifically, understanding knowledge and behavioral practices surrounding antimicrobial usage, and modelling the associations between vaccination and AMR.
