Becoming a Veterinary Public Health Professional means that you help safeguard human health by preventing zoonotic diseases which are diseases that are transferred from animals to humans.
For example, the agricultural industry is a sector that could potentially spread disease from animals to humans and it is the responsibility of veterinary public health officials to implement measures to ensure food safety.
They will also actively help prevent disease by testing animals and animal food products for diseases and pathogens for early detection and plan for emergency response to outbreaks should this be the case.
