NRSE 2420 - One Health: Intersection of People, Animals and the Environment


Students analyze and assess the interconnectedness between human, animal and environment health utilizing an interprofessional approach. Students develop an understanding of One Health and its importance at the local, national and global levels and apply concepts from environment (earth/environmental science), animal health (zoology) and human health (biology) to complex global health issues. The interprofessional approach recognizes that the health of humans, animals and ecosystems are interconnected and that only through cross-discipline, cross-sectorial collaboration can we effectively address risks affecting humans and animals.
