One Health in Cuba
Michigan State University, in partnership with Universidad de La Habana, is redesigning their existing health course to integrate medical, nursing and veterinary students so that an interdisciplinary team will be able to work collaboratively in a health care environment. Through the grant, Michigan State University will create additional capacity on their campus as well as build the capacity of its U.S. partners, Marian University, Meharry Medical College and Western Michigan College, so that they can develop their own interdisciplinary courses and international programs to Cuba through several developmental workshops at MSU. The integration of the One Health discipline and working with students from other universities will prepare faculty from the partnering institutions to address cultural and societal issues collaboratively instead of through linear decision-making.
