One Health Happenings! 
Breaking News!!!
The One Health Commission (OHC) established the One Health Education Task Force (OHETF) in 2015. The One Health Initiative (OHI) team was invited to participate and Dr. George Lueddeke, PhD (author and medical education consultant) was asked to serve as Chair of the Task Force. The OHETF published a concept paper (May 2016) and a Press Release (June 2016) calling for a global One Health education platform and exploring global interest. An online OH Education Survey  was administered to those who responded to the press release and they were invited to attend an online OH Education Conference on November 18, 2016 that gathered additional input. Now you can read the written OH Education Conference report
