The power of One Health in veterinary medicine and beyond

In honor of One Health Day, Deborah Thomson, DVM, details how healthcare professionals can unite to advance the health of humans, pets, and the environment

Today marks One Health Day. In light of the occasion, Deborah Thomson, DVM, founder and CEO of One Health Lessons, in a dvm360® interview based on her lecture from the 2022 Atlantic Coast Veterinary Conference, emphasizes how those in all healthcare realms can join forces and leverage the One Health approach to overcome public health challenges.

The following is a partial transcript of the video.

Deborah Thomson, DVM: It’s all about communication. We have to start speaking not only within ourselves and across the disciplines within veterinary medicine, but also outside of veterinary medicine and improve our communication skills in that manner.
