One Health is defined as both a concept and 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 will be present to introduce One Health, as well as three faculty speakers with diverse backgrounds to discuss the pillars in more detail.
This event is a great opportunity to answer questions you have regarding OH, understand future opportunities in the field, connect with OHSC/OHI, and build interdisciplinary connections.
