About the One Health Concept

Environment changes—including population growth, climate change, antimicrobial resistance, and more— contribute to chronic and communicable diseases that threaten health. The One Health concept encourages different science disciplines to work together to achieve the best health for our entire ecosystem locally, nationally, and globally.

Who Should Attend

Health care providers, basic science researchers, public health practitioners, occupational therapists, ecologists, administrators and others interested in improving and understanding the connection between health and the environment.
