The Flamingo Fall Time And Other Stories: My Rotation Of Medical School At Miami Zoo | FIU News

June 19, 2021

“Michael Valente graduated from FIU Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine (HWCOM) in April. Next month, Dr. Valente completed his pediatric residency at Nemours Children’s Hospital in Orlando.

In light of COVID-19 and previous outbreaks of other zoonotic diseases that pass between animals and humans (Examples: SARS, MERS, HIV Aids, Ebola, Zika etc), leaders at the recent June 11-13, 2021 G7 Summit in Cornwall, England endorsed “strengthening a ‘One Health’ approach across all aspects of pandemic prevention and preparedness.”

What do I need to know about One Health?
Why do I need to know it? Why is it so important?
And what can I do about it?”

Greg Grey, MD, MPH, Director of Duke One Health at the Duke University Global Health Institute explaining how One Health translates into effective public safety and benefits everyone.
