Humans, animals, and the world we live in are inextricably linked, and understanding their interconnectedness is essential. This is the concept of One Health, a growing global movement with veterinarians at the forefront. An upcoming webinar offered by the AVMA Veterinary Career Center will explore One Health and the important roles that veterinarians can play in advancing the movement.
Dr. Jonna Mazet, professor and executive director of the One Health Institute at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, will discuss the the many ways in which veterinarians influence, and are influenced by, the One Health approach during this free, live webinar on June 5.
Attendees will learn about:
- Application of the One Health approach to global problem solving
- How veterinarians are involved in – and in many cases, leading – the One Health movement
- Career opportunities related to One Health

The webinar also will be recorded for on-demand viewing, but CE credit will be available only for live attendees. Space is limited, so be sure to reserve your seat early.
