One Health: What do human health clinicians have to do with it?
Speaker: Dr. Peter Rabinowitz
Peter Rabinowitz is professor of Environmental & Occupational Health Sciences, and director of the UW Center for One Health Research. The center explores linkages between human, animal and environmental health in a "One Health" paradigm, including: zoonotic infectious diseases at the human-animal interface, animals as "sentinels" of environmental health hazards and clinical collaboration between human health care providers and veterinarians in a species-spanning approach.
He has been a visiting scientist at the Global Influenza Program of the World Health Organization and in the Animal Health Division of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization where he researched zoonotic diseases. He is the co-editor, with Lisa Conti, DVM, MPH, of the clinical manual Human Animal Medicine: Zoonoses, Toxicants and Shared Health Risks. Dr. Rabinowitz received his MD degree from the University of Washington and his MPH from Yale University.
