Session date: May 24, 2023

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, researchers have observed the possible links and relationships between diseases and the environment. The One Health concept represents a holistic approach that encompasses the interactions between all living beings with their environments. These interactions are crucial to recognize this interconnectedness, which provides insight into where interventions can be implemented to mitigate disease risk and enhance preparedness efforts on emerging concerns. This session will focus on how living beings interact with the ecosystem that may lead to adverse impact on human health. Leading scientists will discuss the scale of the problem, evidence, vulnerability, and policy development.

• Explain how the One Health approach can promote multidisciplinary collaborations across scientific disciplines
• Analyze at least two examples where clinicians and researchers can participate in research, policy or advocacy
• Discuss and encourage ATS members and others to influence policy makers through One Health approach when they are responding to emerging health challenges
