To promote better awareness of zoonotic infections, identify animal-related allergies, understand the health benefits of human-animal relationships and recognize animals as sentinels in environmental risk exposures, the Academy is supporting a collaborative effort of human and veterinary medical organizations called the One Health Initiative.

I think that members should support One Health. I believe that animal and human health are linked. I know that my animals are part of my well being, and there should be studies for it. Animals are important to the human race.
