After months of planning, research, and engagement of relevant stakeholders, OHDI is happy to announce the launch of the One Health Club (OHC) Project which will support and engage students and young professionals in the establishment of multidisciplinary community and student groups to plan, implement and benefit from One Health activities, projects and opportunities. The One Health Club would be youth-led and will offer valuable training and experiences rooted in the One Health approach, as well as leadership and volunteering opportunities.
Participation in One Health Student Clubs offers one or more of the following;
- Core One Health learning via scheduled online and in-person training events and workshops
- Mentorship by experienced One Health professionals
- Opportunity to learn and participate in the planning, fundraising, and implementation of projects, outreach and research activities (as available)
- Networking opportunities by means of collaborations with fellow One Health advocates, professionals, and other stakeholders
- Development of real-life applied skills such as leadership, public speaking, media advocacy, and technical, grant, and research writing.
Members of these clubs are expected to build partnerships and increase membership within their institutions and communities while carrying out supported One Health activities. OHDI would commit time and resources to support the growth, effectiveness, and sustainability of these One Health Clubs and would guide members as needed.
We welcome students and young professionals interested in One Health action from diverse disciplines which include but are not limited to microbiology, pharmacy, medicine, veterinary medicine and in fields of animal sciences, agricultural sciences, life, health, and social sciences.
