About One Health

What IS One Health?

An international movement aimed at encouraging the collaborative efforts of multiple disciplines-working locally, nationally, and globally--for the health of people, animals, and our environment

CUOHS Committee 2017

Emma Simpson

President
I‘m a 4th year Veterinary Medicine student at Clare College. An interest in One Health was behind my choice of major for my Tripos BA; studying Pathology offered a chance to focus on the theory of epidemiology as well as the specific details of several zoonotic diseases. Subsequently, I organised the One Health component of AVS Congress 2017. One Health, for me, encapsulates the concept that effective collaboration between traditionally segregated professions synergistically improves the health and welfare of human populations, animal populations and the environment. I am particularly interested in the role of veterinarians in public health, disease control and disaster management.

Sophie Howarth

Vice-President
Sophie is a first year student on the Graduate Medicine Course, having previously studied Veterinary Medicine at the University of Liverpool. Her interests include zoonoses, parasitology and microbiology. When not in Cambridge, Sophie can be be found riding horses (and occasionally falling off)

Daniel Zheng

Logistics Officer
I’m a 5th year medical student with far too many hobbies – cooking happens to be the most productive one! When I first heard of One Health, I thought it was a neat concept that kind of sits (ignored) in the background of my course. It’s an interesting framework that broadens public health perspectives beyond “physical, mental, social factors”. It also brings together fascinating topics in ecology, evolution, climate change and the environment, and applies them to my actual degree (no surprise I did Zoology in third year!). While not explicitly taught, these ideas are clearly important when conceptualising how we can approach public health, including but not limited to the management of zoonotic/infectious/transmissible disease
