At the Centre for Public Health and Zoonoses (CPHAZ), we define 'one health' as an integration of multiple disciplines that focus on attaining optimal health for people, animals and the ecosystem. We are looking to learn more about the research happening at the University of Guelph that occurs at the intersect of animal, human and ecosystem health. We know this is a strength at Guelph, and are asking for your help by letting us know about your research in this field.
