Finding Common Space
Disparities in wealth and education, political and rural-urban divides, and spatially marginalized racial and ethnic groups create an opportunity for this inquiry to take an environmental justice and equity lens. Divided by colleges and campuses, our expertise at Penn State to understand and address these pressing issues is siloed.
In response, we propose to pilot a unified Pennsylvania One Health spatial database as a platform for interdisciplinary connections between University Park and Hershey researchers, to identify gaps in traditionally disciplinary data and demonstrate our potential for integrated collaboration.
One Health promotes the idea that the health and well-being of all species are inextricably linked to each other and the environment in an integrated health triad of human-animal-environment. With a large economy based on agriculture; manufacturing; forestry; hunting; outdoor recreation and resource extraction; stressed ecosystems; and rising diseases that connect humans, animals, and the environment, Pennsylvania is an ideal location to study One Health.
The poster includes a list of the project's leadership team, investigators, members of the Technical Advisory Committee, and 2021-2022 One Health Scholars.
