One Health at Mizzou

With schools of medicine, veterinary medicine, nursing, engineering, agriculture, and journalism all on one campus, there's lots going on at Mizzou!

What is the One Health Initiative?

"The One Health concept is a worldwide strategy for expanding interdisciplinary collaborations and communications in all aspects of health care for humans and animals. The synergism achieved will advance health care for the 21st century and beyond by accelerating biomedical research discoveries, enhancing public health efficacy, expeditiously expanding the scientific knowledge base, and improving medical education and clinical care. When properly implemented, it will help protect and save untold millions of lives in our present and future generations." –from the One Health Initiative Website

"Veterinary medicine and human medicine complement each other and should be considered as one medicine"    –Dr. William Osler
