One Health Newsletter (USA) now under University of Florida’s Emerging Pathogens Institute (EPI) Sponsorship “The One Health Newsletter is a collaborative effort by a diverse group of scientists and health professionals committed to promoting One Health. This quarterly newsletter was created to lend support to the One Health Initiative and is dedicated to enhancing the integration of animal, human, and environmental health for the benefit of all by demonstrating One Health in practice.” The popular “One Health Newsletter” http://www.onehealthinitiative.com/newsletter.php [http://epi.ufl.edu/onehealth/] has been transferred to the auspices of the outstanding University of Florida’s “Emerging Pathogens Institute” (EPI) which is directed by physician J. Glenn Morris, MD, MPH & TM http://epi.ufl.edu/j-glenn-morris-jr/. See the latest issue of One Health Newsletter published – Volume 7, Issue 3 http://media.news.health.ufl.edu/misc/egh/OneHealthNewsletter/OHNL_Vol_7_Issue3.pdf. The Newsletter (OHNL) was originated by the Florida State Department of Health in 2008 and became a major feature of the One Health Initiative team’s One Health Initiative website shortly thereafter. The University of Florida’s previous “One Health Center of Excellence,” based at the Emerging Pathogens Institute subsequently assumed the support role for the OHNL in 2013. While the One Health Center of Excellence—previously led by One Health Initiative team Honorary Advisory Board member http://www.onehealthinitiative.com/advBoard.php physician Greg Gray, MD, MPH—undergoes changes to its organizational structure, Dr. Morris and the EPI will assume support for the OHNL. The OHNL has become one of the top 5 most widely accessed and read pages on the One Health Initiative website over this past few years. EPI director Morris, said “The Emerging Pathogens Institute has from its beginning incorporated aspects of human, animal, and environmental health in order to promote the best health outcomes for all. As stated in the purpose and mission of the institute, we aim to provide a world-class research environment to facilitate interdisciplinary studies of emergence and control of human, animal, and plant pathogens. Thus the One Health mission is very important to us, and as such we are honored to further promote One Health research by hosting the world-renowned One Health Newsletter, of which I personally have been a long-time contributor and supporter.“ More about the EPI’s mission and current areas of research can be found at http://epi.ufl.edu/about/.
