Purdue One Health Club:

Purdue One Health Club

Our organization is dedicated to advancing the One Health approach by uniting veterinarians, physicians, environmental scientists, and other health professionals in order to address the complex problems that occur at the junction of our fields of expertise.  This integrated approach to health allows us to improve the well-being of animals, people, and the environment simultaneously.  Our club focuses on providing timely lectures and wet labs and also provides opportunities for community outreach.
