Grant Aims to Improve Communication on Animal Borne Illness
The two-year grant will enable the creation of a working group and a cross-industry network hub known as SD One Health where the public health interests of the livestock, medical and veterinary communities intersect to promote and produce collaboration, resource sharing, knowledge development and community education.
“We see this as an opportunity to create a sustainable public service organization built upon the shared interests of established industry groups to provide a high quality of care to the human and animal populations of South Dakota,” said Dr. Susan Anderson, chair of the University of South Dakota Sanford School of Medicine’s Family Medicine department.
Numerous cases have emerged in recent years illustrating the need for veterinarians, health care providers and agricultural/animal producers to successfully communicate with one another regarding threats, risks, and treatment needs. Threats posed by animal-borne illnesses are especially concerning in South Dakota, where the commercial livestock industry is a major contributor to the state’s economy.
Partners with the University of South Dakota Sanford School of Medicine in this project include the Northeast South Dakota Area Health Education Center, Yankton Rural Area Health Education Center and the South Dakota Public Health Veterinarian at South Dakota State University.
