Gubernatorial Proclamation Signing [Iowa (USA) One Health Month!]
On behalf of the Iowa One Health committee of Iowa, we'd like to invite you to attend a Proclamation signing by Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds declaring the month of November as Iowa One Health Month!
The Proclamation signing will take place on Wednesday, November 22, 2017 at 11:30am in the Governor's formal office at the Iowa State Capitol in Des Moines. Please arrive by 11:15am. Anyone is welcome to attend and free parking (map) is available around the Capitol Complex.
The purpose of this Proclamation is to support, strengthen and expand One Health-related efforts in Iowa, and to increase awareness of One Health principles to improve human health, veterinary health, agriculture, and land stewardship.
One Health is defined as the collaborative effort of multiple health and social science professions, together with their related disciplines and institutions – working locally, nationally, and globally – to attain optimal health for people, domestic animals, wildlife, and our environment.

We hope to see you on November 22, 2017!
