2.      Narrative Description
 
The Center for One Health Illinois focuses on fostering the commonality of health in the three broadly defined areas of education, research and public outreach:
 
Objective 1: To educate of a new cadre of health professionals who understand the determinants and contributing factors for human, animal and ecosystem health as well as how public health policy is developed and how it affects the health of all three
 
Objective 2: To understand disease processes that occur at the interface of human and animal activities, their effects on the environment and how the environment affects their development
 
Objective 3: To improve our society’s preparedness and response to natural and intentional exposures of biological, chemical and physical agents
 
 
3.      Purpose
 
The Center for One Health Illinois consolidated and extended previous educational and research efforts at the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine, specifically the teaching, research and public outreach activities of the Section of Community Health and Preventive Medicine, the Center for Zoonoses Research and the Envirovet program. All of these academic programs have developed a record of accomplishments over the past years with cutting- edge research, educational programs and public outreach on issues of human, animal and ecosystem health. The coursework developed by these programs has already been emulated by other academic institutions. The Illinois Center for One Medicine, One Health will allow each to expand these activities to better serve the people of our state and nation.
 
The Center will serve as a model for a regional and national Center for excellence in research, education and public engagement for issues associated with animal, ecosystem and human health. In that manner, the Center will help to meet the preparedness goals of the State of Illinois, of our region and of our country. The State of Illinois, the region and the entire United States will benefit through being better prepared to deal with intentional or natural exposures to various disease causing agents, whether new or re-emerging.

13. Brief History of Your Organization’s One Health Involvement
 
Since 1960, when the University of Illinois Board of Trustees established the Center for Zoonoses Research, the College of Veterinary Medicine has maintained a focus at the intersection of animal and human health and disease. The Center’s purview grew to include “infectious diseases; food-borne pathogens; food safety and antibiotic resistance; biodefense and bioterrorism; and emergency preparedness.” With the addition of John Herrmann, DVM, MPH to the faculty and the development of the joint degree DVM/MPH program in 2004, the impetus to carry on the One Health focus of the Center for Zoonoses Research was in place. With the support of Dean Whiteley, Drs. JA Herrmann, Y Johnson, HFTroutt and EC Hahn spearheaded the 2007 Colloquium and the Summit and Surveillance

13. Brief History of Your Organization’s One Health Involvement
 
Since 1960, when the University of Illinois Board of Trustees established the Center for Zoonoses Research, the College of Veterinary Medicine has maintained a focus at the intersection of animal and human health and disease. The Center’s purview grew to include “infectious diseases; food-borne pathogens; food safety and antibiotic resistance; biodefense and bioterrorism; and emergency preparedness.” With the addition of John Herrmann, DVM, MPH to the faculty and the development of the joint degree DVM/MPH program in 2004, the impetus to carry on the One Health focus of the Center for Zoonoses Research was in place. With the support of Dean Whiteley, Drs. JA Herrmann, Y Johnson, HFTroutt and EC Hahn spearheaded the 2007 Colloquium and the Summit and Surveillance

2.      Narrative Description
 
The Center for One Health Illinois focuses on fostering the commonality of health in the three broadly defined areas of education, research and public outreach:
 
Objective 1: To educate of a new cadre of health professionals who understand the determinants and contributing factors for human, animal and ecosystem health as well as how public health policy is developed and how it affects the health of all three
 
Objective 2: To understand disease processes that occur at the interface of human and animal activities, their effects on the environment and how the environment affects their development
 
Objective 3: To improve our society’s preparedness and response to natural and intentional exposures of biological, chemical and physical agents
 
 
3.      Purpose
 
The Center for One Health Illinois consolidated and extended previous educational and research efforts at the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine, specifically the teaching, research and public outreach activities of the Section of Community Health and Preventive Medicine, the Center for Zoonoses Research and the Envirovet program. All of these academic programs have developed a record of accomplishments over the past years with cutting- edge research, educational programs and public outreach on issues of human, animal and ecosystem health. The coursework developed by these programs has already been emulated by other academic institutions. The Illinois Center for One Medicine, One Health will allow each to expand these activities to better serve the people of our state and nation.
 
The Center will serve as a model for a regional and national Center for excellence in research, education and public engagement for issues associated with animal, ecosystem and human health. In that manner, the Center will help to meet the preparedness goals of the State of Illinois, of our region and of our country. The State of Illinois, the region and the entire United States will benefit through being better prepared to deal with intentional or natural exposures to various disease causing agents, whether new or re-emerging.

February 24-25, 2010 – The Center for One Health Illinois hosted leaders from state agencies, academia, and non-governmental organizations for a two day Summit to assess the health of Illinois’s human and animal populations and the environments in which they live. The purpose of the “One Health Illinois Summit” was:
  • To provide an update on the health of Illinois’ human, animal and ecosystem communities
  • To encourage communication among representatives from university faculty, state agencies, policymakers, private sector advocates and food producers
  • To consider policy options designed to improve the health of Illinois communities through an integrated One Health approach
 
Three consensus outcomes were recognized by attendees at the One Health Illinois Summit and will form the basis of the post-Summit action plan. They were 1) the development of an integrated surveillance system, 2) improved communication between universities, state agencies, state and local government, industry and the private sector, and 3) educational outreach efforts to the public. http://vetmed.illinois.edu/onehealth/index.html
 
August 25, 2011 - This one day workshop, “Tools for Integrated One Health Surveillance” , sponsored by the Center for One Health Illinois (COHI), brought together experts from academia, state public health agencies and private industry to discuss tools for an integrated surveillance system in Illinois. Invited experts presented seed concepts to underscore the need for integrated surveillance, expected successes and potential impediments to the process. After a working lunch, groups were asked to summarize their thoughts and recommendations for presentation to the assembly. http://vetmed.illinois.edu/onehealth/index.html

13. Brief History of Your Organization’s One Health Involvement
 
Since 1960, when the University of Illinois Board of Trustees established the Center for Zoonoses Research, the College of Veterinary Medicine has maintained a focus at the intersection of animal and human health and disease. The Center’s purview grew to include “infectious diseases; food-borne pathogens; food safety and antibiotic resistance; biodefense and bioterrorism; and emergency preparedness.” With the addition of John Herrmann, DVM, MPH to the faculty and the development of the joint degree DVM/MPH program in 2004, the impetus to carry on the One Health focus of the Center for Zoonoses Research was in place. With the support of Dean Whiteley, Drs. JA Herrmann, Y Johnson, HFTroutt and EC Hahn spearheaded the 2007 Colloquium and the Summit and Surveillance

2.      Narrative Description
 
The Center for One Health Illinois focuses on fostering the commonality of health in the three broadly defined areas of education, research and public outreach:
 
Objective 1: To educate of a new cadre of health professionals who understand the determinants and contributing factors for human, animal and ecosystem health as well as how public health policy is developed and how it affects the health of all three
 
Objective 2: To understand disease processes that occur at the interface of human and animal activities, their effects on the environment and how the environment affects their development
 
Objective 3: To improve our society’s preparedness and response to natural and intentional exposures of biological, chemical and physical agents
 
 
3.      Purpose
 
The Center for One Health Illinois consolidated and extended previous educational and research efforts at the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine, specifically the teaching, research and public outreach activities of the Section of Community Health and Preventive Medicine, the Center for Zoonoses Research and the Envirovet program. All of these academic programs have developed a record of accomplishments over the past years with cutting- edge research, educational programs and public outreach on issues of human, animal and ecosystem health. The coursework developed by these programs has already been emulated by other academic institutions. The Illinois Center for One Medicine, One Health will allow each to expand these activities to better serve the people of our state and nation.
 
The Center will serve as a model for a regional and national Center for excellence in research, education and public engagement for issues associated with animal, ecosystem and human health. In that manner, the Center will help to meet the preparedness goals of the State of Illinois, of our region and of our country. The State of Illinois, the region and the entire United States will benefit through being better prepared to deal with intentional or natural exposures to various disease causing agents, whether new or re-emerging.

2.      Narrative Description
 
The Center for One Health Illinois focuses on fostering the commonality of health in the three broadly defined areas of education, research and public outreach:
 
Objective 1: To educate of a new cadre of health professionals who understand the determinants and contributing factors for human, animal and ecosystem health as well as how public health policy is developed and how it affects the health of all three
 
Objective 2: To understand disease processes that occur at the interface of human and animal activities, their effects on the environment and how the environment affects their development
 
Objective 3: To improve our society’s preparedness and response to natural and intentional exposures of biological, chemical and physical agents
 
 
3.      Purpose
 
The Center for One Health Illinois consolidated and extended previous educational and research efforts at the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine, specifically the teaching, research and public outreach activities of the Section of Community Health and Preventive Medicine, the Center for Zoonoses Research and the Envirovet program. All of these academic programs have developed a record of accomplishments over the past years with cutting- edge research, educational programs and public outreach on issues of human, animal and ecosystem health. The coursework developed by these programs has already been emulated by other academic institutions. The Illinois Center for One Medicine, One Health will allow each to expand these activities to better serve the people of our state and nation.
 
The Center will serve as a model for a regional and national Center for excellence in research, education and public engagement for issues associated with animal, ecosystem and human health. In that manner, the Center will help to meet the preparedness goals of the State of Illinois, of our region and of our country. The State of Illinois, the region and the entire United States will benefit through being better prepared to deal with intentional or natural exposures to various disease causing agents, whether new or re-emerging.

This colloquium laid the foundation for the Center. http://vetmed.illinois.edu/onehealth/index.html
 
February 24-25, 2010 – The Center for One Health Illinois hosted leaders from state agencies, academia, and non-governmental organizations for a two day Summit to assess the health of Illinois’s human and animal populations and the environments in which they live. The purpose of the “One Health Illinois Summit” was:
  • To provide an update on the health of Illinois’ human, animal and ecosystem communities
  • To encourage communication among representatives from university faculty, state agencies, policymakers, private sector advocates and food producers
  • To consider policy options designed to improve the health of Illinois communities through an integrated One Health approach
 
Three consensus outcomes were recognized by attendees at the One Health Illinois Summit and will form the basis of the post-Summit action plan. They were 1) the development of an integrated surveillance system, 2) improved communication between universities, state agencies, state and local government, industry and the private sector, and 3) educational outreach efforts to the public. http://vetmed.illinois.edu/onehealth/index.html
 
August 25, 2011 - This one day workshop, “Tools for Integrated One Health Surveillance” , sponsored by the Center for One Health Illinois (COHI), brought together experts from academia, state public health agencies and private industry to discuss tools for an integrated surveillance system in Illinois. Invited experts presented seed concepts to underscore the need for integrated surveillance, expected successes and potential impediments to the process. After a working lunch, groups were asked to summarize their thoughts and recommendations for presentation to the assembly. http://vetmed.illinois.edu/onehealth/index.html

Since 1960, when the University of Illinois Board of Trustees established the Center for Zoonoses Research, the College of Veterinary Medicine has maintained a focus at the intersection of animal and human health and disease. The Center’s purview grew to include “infectious diseases; food-borne pathogens; food safety and antibiotic resistance; biodefense and bioterrorism; and emergency preparedness.” With the addition of John Herrmann, DVM, MPH to the faculty and the development of the joint degree DVM/MPH program in 2004, the impetus to carry on the One Health focus of the Center for Zoonoses Research was in place.

13. Brief History of Your Organization’s One Health Involvement
 
Since 1960, when the University of Illinois Board of Trustees established the Center for Zoonoses Research, the College of Veterinary Medicine has maintained a focus at the intersection of animal and human health and disease. The Center’s purview grew to include “infectious diseases; food-borne pathogens; food safety and antibiotic resistance; biodefense and bioterrorism; and emergency preparedness.” With the addition of John Herrmann, DVM, MPH to the faculty and the development of the joint degree DVM/MPH program in 2004, the impetus to carry on the One Health focus of the Center for Zoonoses Research was in place. With the support of Dean Whiteley, Drs. JA Herrmann, Y Johnson, HFTroutt and EC Hahn spearheaded the 2007 Colloquium and the Summit and Surveillance

2.      Narrative Description
 
The Center for One Health Illinois focuses on fostering the commonality of health in the three broadly defined areas of education, research and public outreach:
 
Objective 1: To educate of a new cadre of health professionals who understand the determinants and contributing factors for human, animal and ecosystem health as well as how public health policy is developed and how it affects the health of all three
 
Objective 2: To understand disease processes that occur at the interface of human and animal activities, their effects on the environment and how the environment affects their development
 
Objective 3: To improve our society’s preparedness and response to natural and intentional exposures of biological, chemical and physical agents
 
 
3.      Purpose
 
The Center for One Health Illinois consolidated and extended previous educational and research efforts at the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine, specifically the teaching, research and public outreach activities of the Section of Community Health and Preventive Medicine, the Center for Zoonoses Research and the Envirovet program. All of these academic programs have developed a record of accomplishments over the past years with cutting- edge research, educational programs and public outreach on issues of human, animal and ecosystem health. The coursework developed by these programs has already been emulated by other academic institutions. The Illinois Center for One Medicine, One Health will allow each to expand these activities to better serve the people of our state and nation.
 
The Center will serve as a model for a regional and national Center for excellence in research, education and public engagement for issues associated with animal, ecosystem and human health. In that manner, the Center will help to meet the preparedness goals of the State of Illinois, of our region and of our country. The State of Illinois, the region and the entire United States will benefit through being better prepared to deal with intentional or natural exposures to various disease causing agents, whether new or re-emerging.

February 24-25, 2010 – The Center for One Health Illinois hosted leaders from state agencies, academia, and non-governmental organizations for a two day Summit to assess the health of Illinois’s human and animal populations and the environments in which they live. The purpose of the “One Health Illinois Summit” was:
  • To provide an update on the health of Illinois’ human, animal and ecosystem communities
  • To encourage communication among representatives from university faculty, state agencies, policymakers, private sector advocates and food producers
  • To consider policy options designed to improve the health of Illinois communities through an integrated One Health approach
 
Three consensus outcomes were recognized by attendees at the One Health Illinois Summit and will form the basis of the post-Summit action plan. They were 1) the development of an integrated surveillance system, 2) improved communication between universities, state agencies, state and local government, industry and the private sector, and 3) educational outreach efforts to the public. http://vetmed.illinois.edu/onehealth/index.html
 
August 25, 2011 - This one day workshop, “Tools for Integrated One Health Surveillance” , sponsored by the Center for One Health Illinois (COHI), brought together experts from academia, state public health agencies and private industry to discuss tools for an integrated surveillance system in Illinois. Invited experts presented seed concepts to underscore the need for integrated surveillance, expected successes and potential impediments to the process. After a working lunch, groups were asked to summarize their thoughts and recommendations for presentation to the assembly. http://vetmed.illinois.edu/onehealth/index.html

13. Brief History of Your Organization’s One Health Involvement
 
Since 1960, when the University of Illinois Board of Trustees established the Center for Zoonoses Research, the College of Veterinary Medicine has maintained a focus at the intersection of animal and human health and disease. The Center’s purview grew to include “infectious diseases; food-borne pathogens; food safety and antibiotic resistance; biodefense and bioterrorism; and emergency preparedness.” With the addition of John Herrmann, DVM, MPH to the faculty and the development of the joint degree DVM/MPH program in 2004, the impetus to carry on the One Health focus of the Center for Zoonoses Research was in place. With the support of Dean Whiteley, Drs. JA Herrmann, Y Johnson, HFTroutt and EC Hahn spearheaded the 2007 Colloquium and the Summit and Surveillance

2.      Narrative Description
 
The Center for One Health Illinois focuses on fostering the commonality of health in the three broadly defined areas of education, research and public outreach:
 
Objective 1: To educate of a new cadre of health professionals who understand the determinants and contributing factors for human, animal and ecosystem health as well as how public health policy is developed and how it affects the health of all three
 
Objective 2: To understand disease processes that occur at the interface of human and animal activities, their effects on the environment and how the environment affects their development
 
Objective 3: To improve our society’s preparedness and response to natural and intentional exposures of biological, chemical and physical agents
 
 
3.      Purpose
 
The Center for One Health Illinois consolidated and extended previous educational and research efforts at the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine, specifically the teaching, research and public outreach activities of the Section of Community Health and Preventive Medicine, the Center for Zoonoses Research and the Envirovet program. All of these academic programs have developed a record of accomplishments over the past years with cutting- edge research, educational programs and public outreach on issues of human, animal and ecosystem health. The coursework developed by these programs has already been emulated by other academic institutions. The Illinois Center for One Medicine, One Health will allow each to expand these activities to better serve the people of our state and nation.
 
The Center will serve as a model for a regional and national Center for excellence in research, education and public engagement for issues associated with animal, ecosystem and human health. In that manner, the Center will help to meet the preparedness goals of the State of Illinois, of our region and of our country. The State of Illinois, the region and the entire United States will benefit through being better prepared to deal with intentional or natural exposures to various disease causing agents, whether new or re-emerging.

With the support of Dean Whiteley, Drs. JA Herrmann, Y Johnson, HFTroutt and EC Hahn spearheaded the 2007 Colloquium and the Summit and Surveillance

2.      Narrative Description
 
The Center for One Health Illinois focuses on fostering the commonality of health in the three broadly defined areas of education, research and public outreach:
 
Objective 1: To educate of a new cadre of health professionals who understand the determinants and contributing factors for human, animal and ecosystem health as well as how public health policy is developed and how it affects the health of all three
 
Objective 2: To understand disease processes that occur at the interface of human and animal activities, their effects on the environment and how the environment affects their development
 
Objective 3: To improve our society’s preparedness and response to natural and intentional exposures of biological, chemical and physical agents
 
 
3.      Purpose
 
The Center for One Health Illinois consolidated and extended previous educational and research efforts at the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine, specifically the teaching, research and public outreach activities of the Section of Community Health and Preventive Medicine, the Center for Zoonoses Research and the Envirovet program. All of these academic programs have developed a record of accomplishments over the past years with cutting- edge research, educational programs and public outreach on issues of human, animal and ecosystem health. The coursework developed by these programs has already been emulated by other academic institutions. The Illinois Center for One Medicine, One Health will allow each to expand these activities to better serve the people of our state and nation.
 
The Center will serve as a model for a regional and national Center for excellence in research, education and public engagement for issues associated with animal, ecosystem and human health. In that manner, the Center will help to meet the preparedness goals of the State of Illinois, of our region and of our country. The State of Illinois, the region and the entire United States will benefit through being better prepared to deal with intentional or natural exposures to various disease causing agents, whether new or re-emerging.

9.      Other One Health Activities/Initiatives
 
January 9-10, 2007 – The College of Veterinary Medicine University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign hosted a colloquium entitled “One Medicine: The Interface of Human, Animal and Public Health.” Participants represented a variety of institutions, including the School of Public Health at University of Illinois-Chicago Food and Drug Administration, The U.S. Department of Agriculture, the National Institutes of Health, the University of California-Davis, the University of Pennsylvania, the American Veterinary Medical Association and members of federal legislative staffs.
 
Faculty members from a number of departments on the Chicago and Urbana campuses attended. University President B. Joseph White delivered the keynote address, and U.S. Senator Dick Durbin participated via videoconference from Washington, D.C. This colloquium laid the foundation for the Center. http://vetmed.illinois.edu/onehealth/index.html
 
February 24-25, 2010 – The Center for One Health Illinois hosted leaders from state agencies, academia, and non-governmental organizations for a two day Summit to assess the health of Illinois’s human and animal populations and the environments in which they live. The purpose of the “One Health Illinois Summit” was:
  • To provide an update on the health of Illinois’ human, animal and ecosystem communities
  • To encourage communication among representatives from university faculty, state agencies, policymakers, private sector advocates and food producers
  • To consider policy options designed to improve the health of Illinois communities through an integrated One Health approach
 
Three consensus outcomes were recognized by attendees at the One Health Illinois Summit and will form the basis of the post-Summit action plan. They were 1) the development of an integrated surveillance system, 2) improved communication between universities, state agencies, state and local government, industry and the private sector, and 3) educational outreach efforts to the public. http://vetmed.illinois.edu/onehealth/index.html
 
August 25, 2011 - This one day workshop, “Tools for Integrated One Health Surveillance” , sponsored by the Center for One Health Illinois (COHI), brought together experts from academia, state public health agencies and private industry to discuss tools for an integrated surveillance system in Illinois. Invited experts presented seed concepts to underscore the need for integrated surveillance, expected successes and potential impediments to the process. After a working lunch, groups were asked to summarize their thoughts and recommendations for presentation to the assembly. http://vetmed.illinois.edu/onehealth/index.html
