The One Health Institute has a New Logo!
A special thank you to the Branding and Creative Services team in Communications and Marketing at the University of Guelph for working with us on the new graphic to compliment our existing logo. We love it and we really think it encapsulates the One Health approach.
New! Student Spotlight
In our Student Spotlight section, we will be featuring University of Guelph students engaged in One Health-related research.
One Health Brings Together Graduate Student's Passions
Sometimes, timing is everything. Graduate student Jamie Goltz learned about the One Health approach just as she was debating whether to pursue her interest in human health or pursue her interest in environmental health. After reaching out to Population Medicine faculty member Dr. Jane Parmley, she realized she could do both.
As a member of the first ever cohort of collaborative specialization in One Health graduate students, Goltz studies with students in an assortment of disciplines and is able incorporate One Health into her research. She is now reviewing antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in humans and works to estimate resistant bacteria exposure in various pathways, such as food production or health care visits.
Read about how One Health is related to her research here.
The Exploring One Health Series
The One Health Student Committee organized a series of events and activities to help students learn about One Health and its applications.
The initial Exploring One Health series wrapped up at the end of May and was a huge success! There are already plans for it to continue in 2022 and beyond.
In the interim, you can find out more about the 2021 Exploring One Health series, check out the biographies of the One Health experts who contributed to this year's event, and find out more about the student organizing team.
A big thank you to the OHSC organizing committee for all their hard work on Exploring One Health.

June is National Indigenous History Month
All Canadians have a responsibility to learn about indigenous history and the intergenerational effects of residential schools. We must continue to work toward reconciliation and decolonization.
To celebrate National Indigenous History Month, a collection of novels, children's literature, research and scholarly texts, and memoirs have been curated for the McLaughlin Library by Indigenous Initiatives and the Indigenous Student Centre to highlight Indigenous writers, content and research frameworks.
This month is an opportunity to honour and celebrate the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, two-spirit, intersex, asexual and many other identities that fall outside of heterosexual and cisgender paradigms.
The University of Guelph has events and resources available to the LGBTQ2IA+ community.
