Students for One Health
The overarching mission of the Students for One Health rests squarely in the defense of all species. We seek to galvanize passions across disciplinary boundaries for recognizing the interconnectedness of humans, animals and their environments, both within the UCDavis community and the rest of the world through education and service.
Encourage students to:
1. Foster and promote a multi-disciplinary understanding of health issues across species.
2. Dedicate energy to the cultivation of altruistic endeavors in the advocacy of one world, one medicine, one health.
3. Envision and create global and domestic health projects that impact communities, public health, and human-animal interactions as a whole

MPVM and MPH Talk: Paulina Zielinska DVM, MPVM, MPH
Veterinary Public Health Organization and Students for One Health present Dr. Zielinska for a talk about her experience as a DVM with both a Masters in Preventative Veterinary Medicine and Masters in Public Health in the areas of global health and One Health. As a veterinarian with both degrees she offers a unique insight into the benefits of both programs and how she has been able to incorporate them into her career. As veterinarians are asked to be more and more at the forefront of emerging public health issues in both the domestic and international sectors, it benefits all areas of veterinary medicine to find additional forms of education in this area.
