Come out to this seminar if you’re interested in learning about One Health (OH) and OH research on campus! This inaugural event is being organized by the One Health Student Committee, the student arm of the U of G One Health Institute (OHI). Students of any degree level (undergraduate, graduate) and any program are welcome to attend, food and refreshments provided!
One Health is defined as both a concept and an approach. Conceptually, it is the interconnectedness of animal, human and environmental health. The approach involves working across disciplines to combat complex health challenges arising at the intersection of all three pillars. U of G’s environment definition is comprehensive — the importance of built and socially constructed environments, such as political, financial and social, are considered as well the natural environment.
At the seminar, the OHI director and three faculty speakers will be present to discuss OH. This is a great opportunity to answer your OH questions, connect with OHSC/OHI, and understand future OH prospects. If you have additional questions please email Sydney Pearce (firstname.lastname@example.org). We hope to see you there!
