Public Health Brown Bag Lunch

The Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center Department of Public Health is hosting a brown bag lunch featuring guest speaker Rebecca A. Johnson, Ph.D., R.N. F.A.A.N., F.N.A.P., Millsap professor of gerontological nursing and public policy, Sinclair School of Nursing; professor, founder and director, Research Center on Human Animal Interaction at the University of Missouri at noon April 9 in TTUHSC Room 2B152.

Dr. Johnson will present "Human-Companion Animal Interaction and Health Promotion for Both Ends of the Leash." Her abstract, “The Notion of One Health/One Medicine,” will be discussed, drawing examples from completed and current projects at the University of Missouri. It will be argued the concept of “one health” should be expanded to include health promotion, and not exclusively the study of disease.
