Penn Vet volunteers offer One Health Clinic in Delaware

Published: Mar 22, 2018
student-news4Since last October, Penn Vet students from the Shelter Medicine Club and the One Health Club have joined forces to volunteer at the monthly Delaware Humane Association (DHA) One Health Clinic. The clinic was established and organized by Dr. Kristin Jankowski, V’94, who invited Penn Vet students to take part.

The clinic is intended to take DHA’s “Friends for Life” motto to the next level—providing care for underserved pets in Delaware, with an emphasis on One Health that also extends to people. In addition to offering veterinary care, the clinic aims to create ways for human caregivers to seek more frequent healthcare for themselves. It also provides unique educational opportunities for student volunteers. The project’s success would help DHA’s rescued animals while also creating a framework for future One Health initiatives in Delaware and beyond.

Project collaborators include Michael Sahagian V’19, Gillian Anderson, V’20, Taylor Bryant, V’20, John Cain, V’20, James Ferrara, V’20, Lisa Hagan, V’20, Souci Louis, V’20, Katherine Murphy, V’20, Tabitha Stilo, V’20, Melanie Tramontina, V’20, Jane Mesna, V’21, Marina Relman, V’21, and Kimi Sharma, V’21.
