Our university communications team just posted this great web feature on our One Health initiative in Ethiopia:
Here’s the link to the full story:
Things that struck me from the video:
Cervical cancer is the second-highest cause of death in Ethiopia, yet it’s very treatable if caught early. Our cervical cancer project is working to address that.
The student interviewed, Korbin Smith, went to Ethiopia as part of the rabies project. This was a fantastic student learning experience for him and our other students. This initiative benefits both our partners in Ethiopia by improving people’s lives and our community here at Ohio State by providing international learning opportunities.
I hope you are inspired as much as I am by our faculty, students, and One Health partners.
