Texas A & M (College Station, Texas-USA) Dean Endorses One Health Initiative team activities

November 11, 2014

Dear One Health Autonomous Pro Bono Team,

It is an encouragement to see your teams' persistent effort in the promotion of the One Health message. Your relentless effort to garner support and solicit endorsements from leaders in health care for humans, animals and the environment is inspiring. 

We at Texas A&M System support the One Health Initiative with an endorsement that goes beyond words. As you know, we have been tirelessly at work to establish a One Health initiative of our own, started in 2011, by Dr. Thomas "Sam" Shomaker, former Dean of the College of Medicine at the Texas A&M Health Science Center, Dr. Bhanu Chowdhary, Associate Dean of the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, and Dr. Suzanne Yandow, Clinical Professor and Physician of the College of Medicine at the Texas A&M Health Science Center and myself, Dean of the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. In concert with your effort, our vision is improved animal, human, and environmental health and well-being. We anticipate working together in any way possible to advance the One Health collaborative effort across disciplines working locally, nationally, and globally to attain sustainable optimal health for the biological community of living organisms (humans, animals, plants, and microbes) comprising the ecosystem.
