One Health Day is an international campagin started by the One Health Commission for professionals and advocates to raise awareness of the One Health approach. It aims to not only to draw attention to One Health interactions but to also showcase them in action for the world to see. The day is set on November 3rd, although One Health Day events run throughout the entire week. Check out our past One Health Day events below!
For One Health Day 2021, the One Health Student Association held a special interactive event in the Plaza of the Americas, where students were encouraged to stop by and paint a shared canvas celebrating One Health! See the full painting below:
The One Health Center, in partnership with the Career Connections Center, hosted a One Health Day event as a part of the 2019 Discover Your Career in Healthcare Conference. The event was an interactive case study on a possible outbreak.
Through this outbreak simulation exercise, students experienced first-hand what it takes to solve a health problem and all the ways that different disciplines can influence health. The goal is to encourage thinking outside the box when it comes to health and to consider the linkages between human, animal, plant, and the environment while learning how to engage with a variety of stakeholders from different disciplines.
We interact with an ever-changing world where everything is flowing: water, air, people, traffic, weather, satellites and nearly all life as we know it. Movement influences our lives and everything around us. Movement can be deliberate or incidental; it can be random or predictable.
To celebrate One Health Day and to promote a transdisciplinary approach to complex health problems involving people, animals and the environment, the 2018 OH Day Contest, "Capture the Movement", was open to all UF students who want to explore dynamic perspectives, experiences and solutions centered on the impacts that movement brings by expressing ideas through the visual arts.
