“The One Health model is a great way for community-based organizations to expand the reach of our services,” Mandy Evans, BTAA executive director, said. “So often the biggest challenge for folks in rural communities is simply just having access. When we can come together to bring services to these areas, we help to better the lives and wellbeing of families across our region.”
The November 19th One Health event is free to the public.
