What One Health Means to Wildlife Conservation, Human and Veterinary Medicine

March 24, 2023

A NOAA ecologist and professionals from human and veterinary medical fields discuss what’s next after Hawaiʻi One Health Month in January 2023.

 January marked the first official One Health Month for the state of Hawaiʻi. This collaborative discipline focuses on the interconnections of health for humans, animals, and the environment. While One Health Month is over, it’s always a good time to continue learning about the connections that impact our health and the health of our ecosystems. In this podcast we bring together experts from ecology and human and veterinary medicine. Hear about what One Health means from the perspective of:

  • Dr. Stacie Robinson: Research Ecologist with NOAA’s Hawaiian Monk Seal Research Program
  • Dr. Julie Bennington: Veterinarian at Veterinary Centers of America (VCA) Animal Hospitals and Lecturer at University of Hawaii Manoa
  • Dr. Neil Vezeau: Public Health Veterinarian with the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety Inspection Service, and Project Manager for the One Health Commission
  • Sameer Kejriwal: Medical student at University of Hawaii’s John A. Burns School of Medicine
