One Health is the concept that the health of humans, animals, and the environment are directly linked, and that the condition of one can affect the health of the others.

The aim of this new seminar series is to showcase a variety of experts from human, animal, and environmental disciplines who use a One Health approach in their work, and to illustrate the diversity and incredible room for opportunity inherent to this rapidly developing field.

With these seminars, we hope to inspire and engage individuals from the many excellent colleges and departments here at Oregon State University, provide a platform to cultivate collaborations, and foster the development of work using a One Health approach in Oregon and throughout the Pacific Northwest.

We invite faculty, staff, and students from diverse disciplines and at all levels (undergraduate, graduate, and professional) to attend these talks, and to partake in lively discussions surrounding One Health.

Only TWO speakers are scheduled each term, so please mark your calendars!

Each seminar will be followed by a discussion with the speaker, with lunch provided for up to 10 interested participants.
