|One Health’ describes the collaboration between human medicine and veterinary medicine to combat shared health and disease, with a concern for ecosystem health and public health. This includes not only infectious zoonotic diseases and global health, but also naturally occurring shared disease in companion animals that can serve as models for human disease, human-animal interactions, and finally the impact of environmental health on human and animal health. The goal of One Health student clubs at Tufts University is to encourage students of varying disciplines to value the connectedness of animals, humans, and the environment and to think innovatively about solutions to priority global health issues.|
We need volunteers from the Dental School to serve as contacts and liaisons between the dental school and other student One Health groups in Boston as well as on Grafton and Medford campuses to help disseminate information on upcoming events and engage with faculty and students university-wide.
Please contact Dr. Dhadwal with any questions or to volunteer: Shuchi.Dhadwal@tufts.edu
