One Health Strategic Advancement

The CSU One Health Initiative began during CSU's International Colloquium on Global One Health in 2013. The modern One Health movement has gained significant visibility, as health experts around the world increasingly recognize the complexity and interconnectedness of today's climactic, ecological, food security, population and public-health challenges. In 2015 Dr. Bruno Sobral joined CSU to elevate the One Health Initiative into a world-class institute that leverages the university's interdisciplinary expertise toward solving some the planet's pressing challenges.
