One Health/BLaST Resources
One Health emphasizes that human, animal and environmental health are inextricably linked, and it promotes a strategy for expanding interdisciplinary collaborations and communications to attain optimal health for all. Join us at the One Health Seminars to hear speakers present their research on Mondays from 4-5pm held at the Murie Auditorium - UAF. One Health is also now a separate department, and you can find their information here.
