Dr. Michael B. Cates Takes Leadership Role on AVMA's One Health Joint Steering Committee
Date:4/24/2009

SCHAUMBURG, Ill., April 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Dr. Michael B. Cates has become the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) representative on the One Health Joint Steering Committee, lending a powerful new voice to the One Health movement.

One Health is a collaborative effort of multiple disciplines, working locally, nationally, and globally to attain optimal health for people, animals, and the environment. The need for One Health is underscored when considering recent public health events, including the 2006 E. coli outbreak in spinach, the spread of West Nile virus throughout the United States, avian influenza, and the global epidemics of dengue, chikungunya, and Rift Valley fever.

The AVMA Executive Board appointed Dr. Cates to the post at a meeting earlier this month. As the AVMA representative to the One Health committee, Dr. Cates will help create a One Health Commission and also contribute to a global One Health Initiative.

"I believe strongly that we must place a much bigger emphasis on the linkages between human, animal and environmental health and that we should do so in a truly interdisciplinary manner," Dr. Cates says. "I am honored to be the new AVMA representative to this steering committee, and I look forward to working with all the members toward the vision of global 'One Health.'"

Dr. Cates brings a great deal of experience to the One Health movement. In addition to being the 23rd Chief of the Army Veterinary Corps, he was the first veterinarian to lead the U.S. Army Center for Health Promotion and Preventive Medicine as its commanding general (2004-2008) and he was also the first veterinarian to serve as senior public health and preventive medicine advisor to the Army Surgeon General as director of the Proponency Office for Preventative Medicine (2004-2008). He retired from military as a Brigadier General in 2008 after over 28
