Personal profile


Kimberly Tumlin joined the Department of Epidemiology and Environmental Health at the University of Kentucky College of Public Health in March 2020. She serves as an affiliated member of the Center for Innovation in Population Health and was recently named a Kentucky Injury Prevention and Research Center faculty associate. Dr. Tumlin also serves as the Research Director for the Equestrian Athlete Initiative in the Sports Medicine Research Institute housed in the College of Health Sciences. Her expertise is in mitigating negative health outcomes resulting from traumatic physical and psychosocial injury. Considering future of work frameworks, such research is important because we lack clear definition of effective injury-modifying treatments specifically in populations who interact with animals.

Courses Taught

CPH 616 One Health Systems (Online Course)

Using a One Health Systems lens, the course content will demonstrate how human, animal, plant, environmental, and ecosystem health are interconnected. The field of One Health is recognized by the Centers for Disease Control as an important approach to understanding existing and emerging disease, as well as how disruptions in environmental or animal health can directly impact the economic, social, and cultural aspects of human health. This course is divided into three modules. The first emphasizes approaches to the complexity of One Health Systems including upstream drivers of disease potential. The second module will focus on macro-level relationships in One Health practice. The final module will address contemporary topics affecting health. This course is a blended experience of recorded instructor lectures, guest speakers, recordings of conference proceedings, independent reading of articles, and case studies to explain the constructs of One Health Systems in local, national, and global perspectives.
