PNR Rendezvous: Still Searching for One Health: Information Services that Support Prevention of Emerging Zoonotic Disease

Class Details

We have long known that 75% of emerging diseases begin at the human-animal interface. RNA viruses including HIV, SARS, novel influenza strains and COVID-19 all trace their origins to animal reservoirs and environmental factors. It has been over half a century since Charles Schwab first coined the term "One Medicine," and over a decade since the CDC established a One Health Office. Yet One Health initiatives that seek to prevent and control pathogen spillover at the animal/human/ecosystem interface often struggle for long-term international and cross-sector support. What are some of those initiatives, and what role can information specialists play in developing sustainable One Health cultures and mindsets at local, regional, national and international levels? Attend the session to learn more.

Presenter: Suzanne Fricke is the Animal Health Sciences Librarian at Washington State University Pullman, serving as liaison to Veterinary Clinical Sciences(VCS), the Veterinary Teaching Hospital, Veterinary Microbiology and Pathology(VMP), Integrative Physiology and Neuroscience(IPN), and the Allen School for Global Animal Health. She has a background in veterinary medicine and is chair-elect of the Medical Library Association Veterinary Medical and Animal Health Librarians Caucus.
