 Emerging Threats to One Health: Implications to U.S. National Security

 University of Missouri (USA) – Reynolds Alumni Center… April 12, 2011  


“Health Security has historically been marginalized in it's criticality to U.S. National Security. Real world events such as SARS, Avian Influenza, Mad Cow Disease, and West Nile Virus, to name a few, have underscored the economic, social, political, and health impacts of Health Security on a global scale. The National Academies of Science (NAS) study "Rising Above the Gathering Storm: Energizing and Employing America for a Brighter Economic Future, emphasizes the need for a pipeline of young Americans in STEM fields, and reinforces the deeper underlying challenges necessary for the educational system to develop broad-based accredited  programs that support globalization. Health Security is one of the core challenges that societies must address in order to emerge and flourish.”
