A One Health in ACTION example from the 20th century:


The short life’s history of John L. Marshall, DVM, MD (1936 – 1980) demonstrates the tremendous potential of combining human and veterinary medical knowledge.  Dr. Marshall was a prominent orthopedic surgeon (first as a veterinarian and then as a physician) who appreciated the comparative biomedical research disciplines of veterinary medicine and human medicine.
