AGNR 101 - Introduction to One Health: from Antimicrobial Resistance to Zika with a Side of Thousand Cankers

3 Credit Hours
Humans, animals, plants, and the environment are inextricably linked, with the health of one affecting the health of all. The One Health concept recognizes that health issues must be addressed cohesively instead of independently. This approach is essential considering approximately 70% of emerging infectious disease cases in humans and livestock are a consequence of spillover events from wildlife. Similarly, humans play a role in animal disease emergence by facilitating global transfer of infectious agents, altering landscape conditions, and creating environmental disturbances. Additionally, plant diseases can reduce global agricultural productivity by up to 40% for the five major food crops, undermining our ability to safeguard national and global food security. This course serves as the introductory experience for students considering One Health careers and pursuing the One Health Minor.
