Title: Caring for our environment through One Health approaches

Date: October 1 - November 3, 2016

Organizer: Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine

Scope: Local Event

Fee? None

Open to Public: Yes

Description: Using the One Health concept, we are raising awareness of how much we depend on our environment for food, water, shelter and our overall health; and the health of the animals we care for. From our daily lives we have an impact on the environment; however, here on campus we are producing a tremendous amount of waste particularly from single-use food containers. We can reduce the impact on our local environment by doing simple changes in our routines: for example, refuse to use single-use containers by bringing your own food containers. Throughout the month of October, we have been collecting data on people’s knowledge, attitudes and behaviors regarding the amount of waste produced and of ways people think we can do to help reduce our impact on the environment. We also have been sending environmentally friendly messages along with other interventions including a workshop for children at our local preparatory school about the importance of the One Health concept for working together for a better future. On November 3rd, we will put together all these initiatives about environmentally friendly projects and simple lifestyle choices that will help reduce our impact on our local environment.

Scope: State/Provincial Event

Fee? None

Open to Public: No

Description: At Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine (RUSVM) we recognize that animal well-being is dependent on a clean environment and a healthy human population. As postgraduate students, we recognize the challenges of information dissemination in a small third world country. This is part of our daily reality and it inspired us to organize the 1st RUSVM One Health Day Fair which will be held on campus from 12-1pm on November 3rd. The Fair will be open to all RUSVM community members as well as other invited island organizations and businesses. All student clubs have also been encouraged to participate regardless of their focus. We are certain we can all find "One Health ways" to improve our impact on the enviroment, while we care for ourselves and our ecosystem. We have encouraged students and colleagues to think of ways that they already use the One Health concept in their daily routines, group activities or organization's mission. At the fair, we will provide a safe and friendly environment to share and experience practical examples of how our lifestyle can have a positive impact on the environment, animal and human health. After the fair, we will gather all the information obtained and shared. We will continue to have an open sharing space on our Facebook page and we will write a proposal to the University authorities presenting short, medium and long term changes in our campus that could spearhead change with a ripple effect in the wider island communities.

Date: Part I - July 28, 2016  Part II - August 18, 2016   Part III - September 1, 2016

Organizer: Controlled Release Society

Scope: International Event

Fee? No

Open to Public: Yes 

Description: The One Health Initiative is a worldwide strategy for expanding interdisciplinary collaborations and communications in all aspects of health care for humans, animals and the environment (http://onehealthinitiative.com/). Whether dealing with the development of shared diseases among humans and animal species (physiological diseases such as those involving the cardiovascular system or cancer) or efforts to combat infections and drug resistance, tools are needed to optimize the efficiency with which we utilize existing information to support therapeutic drug development.  Such tools can likewise be used to predict the potential absorption of substances resulting from their unintended environmental exposures.  It is this perspective that provides the impetus for this webinar series where we explore the meaning of the One Health initiative and how we can best utilize existing information to support the development of therapeutic formulations for use in humans and veterinary species, to adjust dosages or dosage forms to meet emergency needs that may arise around the globe, or how to explore exposure risks that may occur in the presence of environmental toxins.

Scope: Local Event

Fee? No

Open to Public: Yes

Description: We will be promoting the concept of One Health during this week, and educating our clients and community about how we address this concept on a daily basis. Working with the non-profit, SOAR, we promote One Health and the human-animal bond by doing street outreach to help the homeless of Indianapolis that have pets. We will emphasize the importance of vaccinations, especially rabies vaccinations for the pets of the homeless, as they are more so exposed to wild animals than housed pets, and we will also emphasize the importance to the pet owners of regular flea and parasite prevention on the animals to help prevent zoonotic transmission of certain parasites. In addition, we help to provide foster care for animals whose owners need to get mental health or medical treatment, as many of these pet owners refuse treatment due to their attachment to their pets and concern for them while they are gone.

Scope: Local Event

Fee? No

Open to Public: Yes

Description: Our One Health Day meeting will give Texas A&M students a taste of what traditional veterinary and medical school lectures are like, with mini anatomy and physiology lectures being given by professors from both colleges. The Texas A&M University (TAMU) Student One Health Association (SOHA) is our next generation of One Healthers. As such, they have taken the lead and organized a university-wide One Health Day event called “SOHA One Health Day Mini-Lectures.” SOHA has selected three faculty from colleges across TAMU to present mini-lectures in their areas of expertise.

  • Dr. Wei-Jung Chen, Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine, “Human Medical Anatomy”
  • Dr. Shannon Washburn, Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, “Veterinary Gastrointestinal Physiology”
  • Dr. Rosina C. Krecek, Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, “International Medicine and One Health”

TAMU SOHA is open to all TAMU undergraduate, graduate, and professional students. This association seeks to provide students with experiential knowledge and understanding of One Health.

TAMU SOHA is in a unique position shared by few other One Health student organizations in having access to the widest spectrum of disciplines from liberal arts to life sciences, and embracing all colleges and schools. Their officers currently represent four college/schools system wide: The Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine, the Texas A&M College of Pharmacy, the Texas A&M School of Rural and Public Health, and the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. TAMU SOHA brightly reflects the interdisciplinary culture of the One Health approach.
