Passing the Advancing Emergency Preparedness Through One Health Act
The COVID-19 global pandemic has punctuated the need for taking an integrated One Health approach to fostering and protecting human health and wellbeing. Adtalem Global Education recently produced an informational video on the legislation featuring Representatives Kurt Schrader (D-Oregon) and Ted Yoho (R-Florida), who co-chair the Veterinary Medicine Caucus in Congress. Moderated by Adtalem CEO Lisa Wardell and also featuring AAVMC CEO Dr. Andrew T. Maccabe and Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine Dean Dr. Sean Callanan, the show explores the nature and the urgency of passing the legislation. The government has FEMA to handle natural disasters, posits Congressman Schrader; why not have a One Health apparatus to handle public health disasters? View the program here.
