Call for Students For One Health
Executive Council Leaders
July 15 deadline 

Students for One Health (SOH) is an umbrella organization for student One Health groups/clubs around the world. The SOH aims to empower and educate students within the One Health field. The SOH works closely with the One Health Commission (OHC) as a parent organization which assists the SOH in reaching their goals.

Until now the SOH functioned informally within the OHC. The OHC provides expertise, an online meeting platform and IT support through webinar services, mailing lists and website support.
