“When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.” (John Muir). Federal agencies that have historically acted unilaterally are now recognizing that health of animals and the environment are inextricably linked. The “One Health” approach is the collaborative effort of the human health, veterinary health and environmental health communities to interact on a local, national and global scales in order to attain and maintain optimal health not only for people, but for domestic, farm, and food animals, wildlife, plants and our environment. This course will focus on research programs at the University of Tennessee that approach solving disease issues through communication, cooperation, and collaboration across disciplines and institutions, thus maintaining or reducing health risks to animals, humans, the environment, and society.
