One Health in the Twenty-First Century

Date: Friday, October 10, 2018

Time: 8:00 – 9:00AM

Location: Healy/Maguire Hall, Room 304

The recognition that human, animal, and ecological health are inextricably linked has led to important developments in global health education, research, and practice. A One Health approach that embodies this reality–with a focus on preventive and collaborative interventions–holds the potential to reap rapid benefits for public health. However, many barriers exist to achieving a comprehensive approach. Dr. William Karesh, who coined the term One Health, discussed the benefits, ornery barriers, and future prospects for One Health in the twenty-first century.

This event was a part of the Global Health Security Seminar Series, which is co-sponsored by Georgetown’s Center for Global Health Science and Security and the Global Health Initiative.
