Serving clinicians, animal workers, pet owners and others at the human-animal interface
The growing recognition of the links between human health, animal health and the environment requires new tools to address disease issues and educate health care providers, animal workers and others to help create a healthy coexistence between humans and animals in sustainable local and global ecosystems.
COHR coordinates a number of clinical services related to disease issues. Our clinics include:
The Healthy Animal Worker Clinic at Harborview Medical Center, the nation’s first occupational medicine clinic dedicated to the detection, prevention and management of occupational disease and injury among animal workers, including veterinary, laboratory, farm and zoo and aquarium workers.
The Zoonotic Disease Clinic at the University of Washington Medical Center offers specialized evaluations for suspected or diagnosed zoonotic disease.
The One Health Clinic in downtown Seattle provides care to the human-animal unit of people experiencing homelessness with animals.
We offer resources for scientists, clinicians and animal workers, including:
The Checklist of One Health Epidemiological Reporting of Evidence (COHERE) guidelines to guide the reporting of One Health research.
Health resources for those who work closely with animals.
