"Integrating One Health in Environmental Policymaking": Former Mayor of Moscow, Idaho (USA) to speak at University of Idaho Geography Seminar – Tomorrow – March 4, 2015


Nancy Chaney, RN, MS – Environmental Science– Past President, Association of Idaho Cities and Board member, National League of Cities, former mayor, City of Moscow Idaho (USA) and member of the One Health Initiative team’s Honorary Advisory Board will be a speaker at the University of Idaho’s Geography seminar on Wednesday [tomorrow], March 4, 3:30 pm, McClure 209.  The title is "Integrating One Health in Environmental Policymaking."  

Abstract: “One Health is a strategic initiative to expand cooperation among human, animal, and environmental health professionals. The concept has implications for community planning, resource conservation, conflict resolution, climate adaptation and resilience, food security, energy production, human rights, animal welfare, public health, environmental quality, and more. It also has implications for policymakers, whose worldviews may be informed by academic and vocational backgrounds apart from broad-based integrative disciplines like environmental science and geography. To approximate sustainability, policymakers must internalize the connectedness of issues and economic factors that make the argument for One Health so compelling.”
