Volume 9 Issue 3

November 2017

The One Health Newsletter is a collaborative effort by a diverse group of scientists and health professionals committed to promoting One Health. This newsletter was created to lend support to the One Health Initiative and is dedicated to enhancing the integration of animal, human, and environmental health for the benefit of all by demonstrating One Health in practice. 

After many successful years of production by the Florida Department of Health and the University of Florida's Emerging Pathogens Institute, Kansas State University faculty and staff have transitioned as the managers of the One Health Newsletter. The goal is to continue to engage professionals and students all over the globe to promote a variety of issues and innovations in One Health. Read more about the newsletter transition to Kansas State University here.

This issue of the One Health Newsletter was written by graduate/veterinary students from the College of Veterinary Medicine at Kansas State University with the assistance of our faculty editorial board and guest contributors.
