One Health Comes of Age
Smith, Donald F.
The most recent One Health concept was the signature initiative of Dr. Roger Mahr during his AVMA presidency in 2006-07. He challenged the veterinary profession to assert greater involvement in what scientists and regulatory officials were warning was the growing threat of zoonotic diseases such as avian flu and West Nile virus. These emerging infectious diseases were erupting with greater frequency and virulence in the U.S. and around the world.
