one health and the society

The concept

One health is a growing mission to integrate multiple disciplines on a local, national and global scale to optimise health for people, animals and the environment. Crossing the boundaries between medical, veterinary and environmental care can maximally advance the progression of global health

CUOHS Committee 2023-2024

Kelly Chan

Hi everyone! I’m a 4th year medic at Murray Edwards – I wish to raise awareness for the concept of One Health which helps protect humans, animals and the environment, so we can all work towards a sustainable future.

Linda Tang

Hey! I’m a third year medic at Catz. I believe one health is an important concept to be aware of, and it has a wide range of implications. I am looking forward to getting involved in the society this year and helping to raise awareness for one health!

Louisa Yapp

Communications Officer
Hey everyone! I’m a 4th year medic at Trinity Hall. Learning about the overlap between human and veterinary medicine sounds like a wonderful way to tackle some of planet earth’s biggest problems, and I can’t wait to help spread awareness as this year’s comms officer :)

Karsa Ambikaibakan

Logistics Officer
I am interested in neglected tropical diseases and the methods used to control these public health threats. I am really looking forward to getting involved with One Health Society!

Lily Sneddon

Hi everyone, I’m a 2nd year medic at Emma interested in learning more about infectious diseases and the different ways they affect people and the world around them. One Health is really important when considering this, and I’m looking forward to working with the rest of the team and encouraging others to get involved with the society! 😊

Martha Rushbrooke

Publicity Officer
Hi, my name is Martha and I’m a 5th year vet at Catz. I’m the social media officer for CUOHS this year. I have been drawn to the One Health concept ever since reading a book on zoonoses when I was still at school. I believe that health and disease should be studied as a unified concept encompassing nonhuman and human models in order for us to progress in our understanding, and this is what One Health seeks to do.
