Have you ever heard about the term “One Health”? As one of the key strategies of the swine industry, the “One Health Approach” offers a broad, integrative framework for dealing with complex issues that intersect numerous fields, enhancing human and animal health, and promoting environmental stability. In today’s episode, I talk to Dr. Heather Fowler, the director of producer and public health for the National Pork Board. Our conversation revolves around the vital role of the One Health Approach in the evolving universe of the swine industry and how this integrated methodology radically bridges gaps between human health, animal welfare, and environmental health, providing a holistic approach to addressing problems.
“The implementation of the One Health Approach reinforces the significance of our existing principles in the swine industry, highlighting the alignment between human health, animal welfare, and environmental well-being.” – Dr. Heather Fowler
