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. One Health is a movement that is forging a new level of collaboration among physicians, veterinarians, scientific-health and environmentally-related disciplines. Thought leaders from disparate fields promote strategies to expand interdisciplinary understanding and communication in all aspects of healthcare for humans, animals and the environment.
