The One Health course addresses the intersection of human, animal and environmental health. This weekly discussion series is designed to facilitate the understanding of health as an inexorably linked system requiring multidisciplinary collaborative efforts.

Learning objectives include:

  1. Describing how different disciplines contribute to the practice of One Health
  2. Using One Health models to explain global health interventions

The One Health discussion sessions are open to the public. They bring together established public health professionals, physicians, veterinarians, environmental researchers and other local/global health professionals on current research and updates in the interconnectedness of people, animals and the environment.

This graduate level course is also available for credit to junior and senior level undergraduates.

Credits: 2 or 3 credit hours. In addition to regular course work, three credit students will be required to attend a weekly, one hour (8:30 am – 9:30 a.m.) discussion session on Wednesday mornings on UNC or Duke Campus.
