I study veterinary medicine in University of Thessaly, Greece. During my studies I had different roles at my university, at our IVSA chapter and at IVSA Global. What makes me love and want to serve the One Health concept was my work as One Health manager of IVSA Thessaly and as YouTube Creator of the IVSA Standing Committee on One Health (SCOH). My position as VP for Education makes me very happy because through this I can help not only vet students, but also students in other health fields.

OYW Kampala International University Caucus
Uganda has one of the world's largest percentages of young people under 30 – is estimated at 78% –Unfortunately, this young population suffers from one of the highest unem-ployment rates in Sub-Saharan Africa. It is estimated that more than 400,000 young people graduate from Ugandan universities each year and yet, the market can provide only 8,000 jobs annually. In addition, some of the knowledge and educa-tion being passed onto young people is obsolete and no longer relevant to our changing circumstances .
Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene  Annual Meeting: One Health

16 – 17 September, 2019

The Annual Meeting will examine the changing world from a One Health perspective. Two major themes of surveillance and delivery of healthcare will be considered through the cross-cutting lenses of economics, social sciences and technology. We aim to end the meeting with a clear steer towards what RSTMH should be focusing on operationally and strategically in this space, as one of our priority areas.
We launched our pilot ISOHA Mentorship Program this year after receiving strong interest from both mentors and mentees. Ultimately, we matched over 230 students representing 34 countries with over 150 professionals from 41 different countries and with a vast range of backgrounds including veterinarians, doctors, engineers, and social scientists. Thanks to their hard work and dedication to the program, interdisciplinary One Health networks expanded around the world. 
Please see our newsletter at the link below summarizing the program highlights. We are inspired by the international connections, meaningful conversations, and professional relationships that have developed through this program.
