Gail is the Senior officer for Pew’s campaign on human health and industrial farming, a project aimed at phasing out overuse of antibiotics in food production. She has served on or chaired numerous state and federal infectious disease committees, as a scientific advisor for several national and international conferences, and is an adjunct faculty member at the Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine. She has authored several peer-reviewed publications on various infectious diseases and public health topics and has provided practical training in applied epidemiology to public health scholars.
