LEO Network

ANTHC One Health Group

One Health is a concept that recognizes the relationships between the health of humans, animals, plants and the environment. It has special relevance in regions like the Arctic, where people live close to the land and depend upon natural resources for food, medicine and homemade materials. The One Health Group was started in 2013 as a forum to raise awareness about emerging One Health issues. Meetings are held quarterly to share information on member activities, and to discuss emerging One Health issues. The group provides a forum for identifying areas of common interest and collaboration.

The meeting format includes a review of recent One Health relevant observations (e.g. LEO Network), as well as agency rounding and presentations on hot topics. The meeting is co-hosted by Michael Brubaker of the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium (ANTHC), Center for Climate and Health and Dr. Thomas Hennessy of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Arctic Investigations Program. The group includes professionals interested in One Health from Canada, Alaska and other parts of the United States and is open to participants in fields related to harvest, management or cultivation of plants, animals and wildlife, veterinary medicine, environmental management and public health.
