One Health Commission leads online One Health Education Conference

One Health Commission leads online One Health Education Conference

11/18/2016

Led by the Commission's One Health Education Task Force.

The One Health Commission's One Health EducationTask Force (OHETF), created in 2015,  proposed that the Commission, in partnership with interested individuals / organizations, develop a strong proposal seeking funding to establish a global One Health Education program that would provide funds to prepare teachers, from primary-secondary (K-12) to undergrad and graduate faculty, to develop and teach One Health Education courses, programs, and materials.  Calls for a global One Health education platform were made in a concept paper, ‘Preparing Society to create the world we need through ‘One Health’ education”   (May 2016) and a Press Release (June 2016). 

Response to the press release was heartening. The OHETF then developed an online OH Education survey with input from internationally-recognized reviewers and press release respondents were invited to complete the survey.  Results were used to organize an online OH Education Conference held on November 18, 2016.
