“I realized that if any part of the circle should be destroyed, the balance will be broken,” said Shi Wenbo. In a way, he’s talking about the big picture of One Health and about the unique international conference he participated in this March. Undergraduate students from Nanjing Agricultural University (NAU) traveled to Davis, California, for the NAU-UC Davis graduate education conference on One Health, sponsored by the Western Institute for Food Safety and Security (WIFSS).

Wenbo continued, “It’s important to make overall plans and take all the factors into consideration by means of interdisciplinary cooperation method in terms of dealing with the food safety and related problems.”

At the conference, all factors are indeed part of the discussion: NAU students learn diverse topics including environmental health, ecology, veterinary medicine, public health, human medicine, molecular and microbiology, ecosystem health, antimicrobial resistance, dairy management and health, food safety, toxicology, and plant science and plant pathology.

The integrative approach of the conference captures the essence of the educational program among UC Davis’ School of Veterinary MedicineCollege of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, WIFSS and NAU. The program is directed at establishing a One Health Center for Food Safety and Animal Health at NAU.
