Public Health Club

Kansas State University American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association logoThe Public Health Club is one of Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine’s newest student organization. Officially recognized by SCAVMA on 27 September 2007, the PHC is dedicated to the growing role of veterinarians in public health. At least 70% of infectious diseases in humans can be zoonotic, so control of the animal reservoirs of those agents is vital to public health, and veterinarians are uniquely situated and educated to aid in such efforts. The PHC works to further explore such possibilities and strive to educate veterinarians and the public for the improvement of public health.
