PhD Student Receives Bullitt Foundation Fellowship To Launch One Health Dairy Project in Washington State (USA) September 10, 2015—A PhD student at the University of Washington plans to tackle issues in sustainable dairy farming with funding from the Bullitt Foundation. Dr. Heather Fowler [a veterinarian with VMD and MPH degrees] was selected for the Foundation’s Environmental Fellowship Award, a highly selective prize of $100,000 given to a single graduate student. “I’m thankful to have the support and the funding as well as the title of the Environmental Fellow,” said Fowler, who is a doctoral student in the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences in the UW School of Public Heath and part of the UW’s Center for One Health Research. “Emerging environmental health issues are often multi-factorial and really complex and there is no one easy solution,” she explains, which is why a One Health approach can help, particularly in an industry like dairy agriculture. It brings stakeholders from human, animal, and environmental health to the table. Please see full news release attached.
