American Veterinary Medical Association’s (AVMA) President-elect Endorses One Health concept Provided to One Health Initiative website May 19, 2015 “I have always been a strong supporter of the One Health concept. As the human population continues to increase and expand across the globe, the interconnection of people, animals and our environment becomes more significant and impactful. Multiple disciplines working locally, nationally and globally must collaborate to attain optimal health for all species and the landscapes they call home and share. The future of mankind depends on a strong relationship between all healthcare professionals, and veterinarians play a critical role in not only fostering that relationship but ensuring that it works for the benefit of animals, humans and the environment they share.” Joseph H. Kinnarney, DVM, MS, President-elect American Veterinary Medical Association Note: Dr. Kinnarney is listed on the One Health Initiative website’s Supporters page (scroll down).
