Keynote Panel: A Discussion on the One Health Initiative in Arizona
Panel members: Dr. Kristen Pogreba-Brown, Hayley Yaglom and Dr. Katherine Ellingson
The concept of One Health is a worldwide strategy that recognizes the fact that the health of people, animals, and the environment are connected. One Health encourages interdisciplinary collaboration and communication efforts at the local, national and global levels. One Health is a movement! It requires the participation of member disciplines that include: public health, animal health, agriculture, microbiology, environmental biology, conservation, medicine, pharmacy, nursing, engineering, law, social and behavioral sciences, economics as well as partners in government. The goal of One Health is to work together to achieve optimal health for people, animals, and our environment.
To become a world leader in One Health, the One Health Consortium was established at the University of Arizona in 2014. Members of the University of Arizona One Health community are active leaders in their individual disciplines and actively collaborate with the community and industries that would be impacted by complex disease threats and public health challenges. The consortium goals are to address these challenges with innovative solutions while retaining the quality of research paramount to the University’s mission. Current research interests include: antibiotic resistance, food safety and global security, water safety and security, vectorborne and emerging zoonotic diseases, and border health.
Beginning in Fall of 2017, a One Health Graduate Program will be offered at the University of Arizona through the Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health. The Master of Public Health (MPH) in One Health will train students in the theory and application of utilizing One Health approaches to address complex public health challenges.
Who can participate:
University of Arizona graduate and undergraduate students who wish to present original research with a public health focus or public health applications.
