As we round up the 2020 cohort of the OHAM Program this month of September, it is very expedient that we reflect on all the rigorous learning that has been achieved over the past 5 months in several areas including Public Health, Zoonoses, Environmental Health, Climate Change, Food Security, Agriculture, and Conservation. It is equally important to discuss how these learning can be implemented and utilized to advance our careers as One Health advocates and champions in our respective places of work. Also, we seek to evaluate how these One Health facets can integratively be a launching pad for promising careers in Global Health and Development especially for young One Health professionals and enthusiasts.
This is what the final webinar of the OHAM Program 2020 will focus on.
