    One Health

    Our program emphasizes a One Health approach to address local and global public health concerns. The One Health concept recognizes that the health of people is connected to the health of animals and the environment. Recognition of the dynamic interdependence of human, animal, and environmental health promotes interdisciplinary collaboration among medical, veterinary, public health, and other professionals.
