Get acquainted with our new One Health page, designed to foster conversation around the connection between human and animal health. Our One Health page features an editorial co-authored by one of our physician editors, Ernest Yeh, MD, and a Veterinary Manual editor, Nicholas Roman, DVM, MPH, as well as relevant content from our site ranging from zoonotic diseases, to the human-animal bond, to the role of the veterinarian in One Health. Alongside this content, our site highlights blogs authored by our student veterinarian and physician authors as well as additional source material.
