Training Overview
The “One Health” approach recognizes the linkage between human health, animal health, and the environment. It highlights the need for collaboration across multiple sectors in order to ensure the best health for people, animals, and the environment. Based on volume of calls to local health departments, one of the top priority needs is animal bites. On this webinar, Dr. Rabinowitz will share how the “One Health” paradigm can be used to manage and prevent animal bites.

The course contains two modules: a content module and a resources and evaluation module. After accessing both modules, learners will earn a certificate of completion. When the certificate is available, learners will see a Certificate button on their dashboard.

This recording is approximately 90 minutes. There are no prerequisites. Participants will need a broadband internet connection (Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox are preferred browsers) and computer speakers. For technical support, please contact emoryphtc@emory.edu.
