    Response to Veterinary Management of C-19

    Dear authors,

    What an excellent article. I cannot but wish it were written in a medical journal also. It seems as though we have so much expertise to offer, part of the reason for One Health advocacy that is so needed. We need the medical audience to come around to this.
    My entire doctoral thesis was based on Interprofessional Education that includes One Health for MD as well as other allied health professional students. Education may be the only way to advocate OH for the next generation in pandemic mitigation.
