5 One Health Education One Health curriculum needs to address the effects of climate on ecosystem health, wildlife, and the movement of plant, animal, and human diseases There is an opportunity for veterinary medicine to leverage its expertise in One Health and lead advances in food-animal husbandry and welfare, water safety and security, and the health of wildlife and ecosystems Need to integrate the key disciplines of human medicine, veterinary medicine, conservation biology, public health, basic sciences, agriculture, economics, social sciences and environmental sciences ONE HEALTH LEADERSHIP EXPERIENCE 5

6 Education Recommendations One Health is an “… opportunity to connect and educate health professionals at an early stage, when they are naturally learning together. As undergraduates, these students are excited about integrating new ideas, and their academic schedule may be more accommodating to a variety of classes. Presenting One Health concepts to students at this stage of their education could have a positive impact on their awareness of and attitudes toward public health.” »Farone TS. Incorporating the one-health concept into undergraduate education.J Am Vet Med Assoc. 2011 Dec 1;239(11):1406-7. “Introducing this concept to students early in their academic careers is important to ensure that they are still open to broad-based, interdisciplinary ways of thinking. »Kahn LH. Educating undergraduates on one health. J Am Vet Med Assoc. 2012 Jan 15;240(2):144. ONE HEALTH LEADERSHIP EXPERIENCE 6

7 Challenges for One Health Leaders Labelled as a non-expert Issues with common language when mixing disciplines Lack of funding – public, private and industry, competing priorities Small number of One Health mentors and senior faculty No unifying vision for One Health in Canada and abroad - poor coordination among Canadian health actors, “siloes” Career paths in One Health are often unclear and few well- paying job opportunities are advertised for graduates Limited opportunities to mobilize interest in One Health outside of academia in Canada Will require changing behaviours and mindsets ONE HEALTH LEADERSHIP EXPERIENCE 7
