Organized by: University of Guelph

The One Health approach should become fundamental to the ways in which we direct, fund, conduct and speak about health science in Canada and the world. The science policy community has a role to play in this realignment of how science is conducted and how science (knowledge) is used to guide/influence policy making, and how we train the next generation of thought leaders. The science policy community can look to the growing network of proponents in universities and agencies who model and advocate for this One Health approach to health science.
