One Health Society
Welcome to the One Health Society in UCD!
We are an open, welcoming, interdisciplinary society with members from across the campus including vets, medics, nurses, agricultural and environmental scientists and anybody with an interest in One Health!
The One Health Initiative states ‘One Health is dedicated to improving the lives of all species – human and animal – through the integration of human medicine, veterinary medicine and Environmental Science’s.
Throughout the year we host talks on a range of One Health topics including antimicrobial resistance, zoonotic diseases, pandemics, comparative oncology and other links between human and animal medicine, as well as some practical workshops such as a comparative anatomy workshop and suturing skills workshops. We’ve led students to Seal Rescue Ireland to learn about wildlife and diseases, been involved in bringing Temple Grandin to UCD, and other acitvities throughout the years.
We hope to increase awareness amongst the student body on all things One Health, and how One Health spans vast areas of all the different sciences, while connecting students across multiple disciplines.
