One Health One Planet™
About One Health One Planet™
We are seeing unprecedented changes in the earth’s environmental and physical processes. Climate change, air pollution, reduced availability of clean water, and persistent toxic chemicals threaten human, animal, and environmental health and well-being.
To build a shared interdisciplinary vision of “health” and serve as a catalyst for positive change, Phipps Conservatory brings together leaders to explore global and local environmental issues and their effects on human, animal and environmental health through the One Health Initiative, a movement that forges collaborations among physicians, veterinarians, environmental and health sciences, and environmentally-related disciplines, promoting strategies to expand interdisciplinary understanding and communication in all aspects of healthcare for humans, animals and the environment.
