Veterinarians are uniquely skilled and trained to facilitate a One Health approach to their practice. A One Health approach considers the intricate connections between animal health, environmental health and human health and is the key to preventing the next pandemic or foreign animal disease, protecting animal health from changing environments and climates and for considering a whole-animal, integrated, prevention and treatment plans for your patients. Specifically, we will share current field research activities including: (1) how One Health is being applied to understand and prevent Rift Valley fever virus from following West Nile and Zika virus into the Americas, and (2) the applications of clinical domestic medicine to One Health projects in pangolins of Southeast Asia. Finally, we will examine how One Health policies beyond an individual veterinarian or team can help safeguard the health of our pets, the food and fiber animals, wildlife, and people.

Presenter Bio

Debra Vey Voda-Hamilton is the principal at Hamilton Law and Mediation, PLLC, (HLM) the first conflict consultation practice in the US dedicated to helping people resolve conflicts that arise in business and life over animals.

HLM uses empathy, compassion and methods of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) to assist people in understanding the why of a conflict that arises arise when dealing with animals. These conflicts are relational not transactional and can be nipped in the bud before they nip the veterinarian in the butt if skills to address the conflict are learned and applied. Attendees of Debra’s programs and her clients recognize the benefit of having Debra teach them the skills necessary to allowing them to sit down, be curious and work with their perceived adversary to have a neutral discussion before litigation is initiated.

Debra works with veterinarians, their staff, colleagues and clients. This give Debra a unique perspective that empowers everyone she works with to listen for understanding, speak with agency and pursue their passion of helping people and their pets while reducing their exposure to emotionally charged disagreements and the ensuing costly litigation.

Debra’s programs help people communicate, as a speaker and receiver of information. She is the go to person for information regarding the use of peaceful communication in conflicts over animals for the NY Times, Wall Street Journal, the Chicago Sun Times, Bloomberg and the US News and World Report.

[Stop License Review] She also helps pet owners and pet service providers aid each other in the creation and implementation a SIMPLE short and long term pet care plan. The MAAP Plan enables beloved companion animals get the care their owners want them to have any time their owner is personally not able to care for them.
