Important “One Health” 21st century History:

June 2007- American Medical Association Meeting during “One Health” resolution testimony.  Historic resolution subsequently adopted.

Left to right: Ronald M. Davis, MD, President AMA, Roger K. Mahr, DVM, President, American Veterinary Medical Association and Laura H. Kahn, MD, MPH, MPP of Princeton University.

The AMA “One Health” resolution was originally drafted by Dr. Kahn under Dr. Davis’s guidance. Thomas P. Monath, MD and Bruce Kaplan, DVM assisted.  The historic “One Health” liaison between AVMA and AMA [in effect today] was fostered by collaboration between Drs. Mahr and Davis.

Where: Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, Pittsburgh, PA

Who: Medical and public health professionals, animal health professionals, scientists, ecologists, architecture and green building professionals, community officials and organizers, educators, and students

Why: In this century 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 and animal health and well-being.  

To build a shared interdisciplinary vision of “health,” each expert-led conference session will explore environmental issues and their effects on human and animal health, defining and building on each through the lens of the others:

1) Environmental issues and effects on human health
2) Environmental issues and effects on animal health
3) Healthy ecosystems, healthy communities
4) Finding inspiration in nature to promote health and improve the places where we live, work, learn and play

Each session will include a panel discussion to build a base for future collaboration.

The One Health Initiative is a movement to forge collaborations between physicians, veterinarians, scientific-health and environmentally related disciplines. One Health promotes strategies to expand interdisciplinary collaboration and communication in all aspects of healthcare for humans, animals and the environment.

The Phipps Research Institute for Biophilia and Science Engagement acknowledges the connection between human and environmental health. The institute studies the built and natural environments and their intersection with human health and wellness.

Registration information will be announced soon! For more details, contact Dr. Sarah States at sstates@phipps.conservatory.org.
