You’ve heard of One Health, but what does it look like in a wildlife health career?
The health intersections between animals and humans are real. Our knowledge of the interactions’ effects on species and the environment is limited but growing — and your involvement as a veterinary medicine professional is indispensable. Awareness is an essential first step.
Veterinary and medical experts had a chance to weigh in during a career panel hosted by Students for One Health at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. The panelists shared their insights on the influences and positive impact of a One Health approach to wildlife and the environment.
