Why working at PHO is important to me:

"I am a true “One Health” practitioner and PHO has provided me with an incredible opportunity to draw upon all of my education and experiences to embrace the entire human–animal–environmental public health continuum, which is a strong focus of our organization. Moreover, PHO fosters a culture of extraordinary thinking. Innovation, teaching, education, research, and exemplary clinical standards are nurtured, encouraged, and strongly and positively supported by PHO. PHO is a world-class organization, with world-class leadership, and I am both proud and privileged to be a part of it."
