One health, one medicine

Partnership unites veterinarians and human health professionals

The Universidade Federal de Viçosa, in Brazil, has a well-recognized veterinary school and a brand-new medical school. WSU’s own well-recognized schools of veterinary medicine and global animal health have longstanding research collaborations with UFV and a global health partnership with the University of Washington.

It makes perfect sense, then, that WSU would be the conduit for a new partnership between the 3 universities. Together they’re developing One Health, an innovative collaboration between veterinary medicine and human health professionals to improve the intertwined lives and well-being of animals and people alike.
