Chronic wasting disease, or CWD is a prion disease that affects several cervid species: deer, elk, reindeer, sika deer and moose. It has been found in some areas of North America, including three provinces in Canada and at least 26 states.

My guest today has expressed concern that it is probable that human cases of CWD associated with the consumption of contaminated meat will be documented in the years ahead.

This has prompted the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRAP) at the University of Minnesota to launch the Chronic Wasting Disease Response, Research and Policy Program (CWD Program).

Joining me today is the director of CIDRAP, Michael Osterholm, PhD.
