The NAP http://www.napractice.org/index.cfm sent a letter of support (see http://alturl.com/g6uny) written to Secretaries of Health and Human Services (Kathleen Sebelius) and Homeland Security (Janet Napolitano). The NAP letter was signed by the NAP President and President-elect, Drs. Arthur Hazelwood and John Herbold, respectively. It endorsed the original One Health Proposal letter http://alturl.com/kv7y8 sent by Drs. Ralph Richardson and Tom Monath to Secretaries Sebelius and Napolitano.
The Academies include Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, Optometry, Osteopathic Medicine, Pharmacy, Podiatric Medicine, Psychology, Social Work, and Veterinary Medicine. This multi-disciplinary group represents the true spirit of the One Health concept.
