International Animal Welfare Training Institute Seminar Presents "One Health"

November 5, 2009

The International Animal Welfare Training Institute presents a free seminar by Cheryl Scott, DVM, MPVM, who will talk about ‘Why veterinarians are vital to the pursuit of a better health for humans, animals, and our environment."

Scott is the director of the Calvin Schwabe One Health Project at the School of Veterinary Medicine. Her role is to educate veterinarians of the future to integrate human, animal, and ecosystem protection into their professional lives.

One Health describes the collaboration of various scientific disciplines in the pursuit of better health for all—humans, animals, and ecosystems.

This approach is an emerging area of professional practice arising from the recognition of the growing interconnections and overlap of  economic, cultural and physical factors involved in complex health challenges.

One Health understands that humans do not exist in isolation, but are part of the larger, total living ecosystem, and that the activities and conditions of each member affect the others.
