UF OHSA is an undergraduate student organization promoting the need for interdisciplinarity and recognizing interconnections between humans, animals, plants, and the environment. Incepted after the One Health Center's undergraduate course on the Circular Nature of COVID-19, this group aims to educate UF's student body on the One Health vision through special events and invited speakers.
General Body Meetings are held several times a semester and are general purpose meetings for the entire org to go over the latest news, upcoming events, and cover any necessary organizational business matters (elections, membership requirements, etc.). Most GBMs also have a special topic of interest, with presentations by E-Board members and guest speakers. Past topics have included misinformation, anti-microbial resistance, and much more!
Service events are held twice a month and are meant for our members to try out volunteering with different organizations in Alachua country. Some volunteering events we've participated in include Project Downtown Gainesville, Habitat for Humanity, and food drives for Food4Kids and Hitchcock Field & Fork Pantry. We also have an adopted street that we clean as an org that we named cow street!
Programming events include professional development events surrounding resume workshops, research-seeking tips, and networking opportunities. Most of the events are hosted by OHSA, but some also include those hosted by the One Health Center as well as collaborating orgs. All programming events are specified on our social media.
Socials are events that emphasize member bonding. We hold an array of socials both online and in-person throughout the semester to encourage everyone to get to know each other. Some of our previous socials included bowling, game nights, movie nights, and a group Krishna lunch!
Fundraising includes events held at supporting businesses in Gainesville such as Blaze, Chipotle, and more. We hold these events to raise money for future events and OHSA merch for our members!
