The Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges (AAVMC) and the Association for Prevention Teaching and Research (APTR) are presenting the One Health Interprofessional Education Webinar on Tuesday, September 27 from 1:00-2:00 p.m. Eastern. This webinar will present case studies available for use by instructors from a variety of health professions. The curriculum is the product of a partnership formed in 2015 between APTR, the Health People Curriculum Task Force, and the AAVMC.
The case studies represent the work of researchers in veterinary medicine, human medicine, public health and other health professions on topics that range from lead poisoning to emerging diseases such as Chikungunyavirus. One Health is the collaborative effort of multiple disciplines – working locally, nationally, and globally – to attain optimal health for people, animals and our environment. The One Health initiative focuses attention on the importance of the connections between human health, animal health, and ecosystem health.
Emerging infectious disease threats, as well as growing awareness about the dangers of antimicrobial resistance and the positive benefits of human-animal interactions are bringing One Health concepts to the attention of many educators in the health professions. This webinar will highlight this initiative and four case study authors will present their work.
