2011 JD Stewart Address
ONE MEDICINE: the parallels, needs and benefits of veterinary and human medicine as a team.
GUEST SPEAKER - Professor Stephen Ettinger, DVM
For more than forty years Cornell graduate Professor Stephen Ettinger has worked in the veterinary care industry as a pioneer and leading scholar in small animal internal medicine, cardiology, hospital management and professional veterinary development.
He is the author and editor of the internationally acclaimed ‘Textbook of Veterinary Internal Medicine’, a core text for veterinary students for more than three decades.
This year he received the Mark Morris Sr. Lifetime Achievement Award, one of North America’s premier annual veterinary recognitions, which is given to an individual who has contributed most significantly to small animal medicine over his or her career.
Human and veterinary medicine share a common biomedical knowledge base yet they developed quite separately. Modern medicine dates back less than 150 years; prior to that medicine remained relatively static for nearly 2500 years. Agriculture played a large role in veterinary medicine’s development and it is this that has kept the two professions distinct and separate. Many advances in medicine have emerged from collaboration among many different branches of the sciences. Now medicine, veterinary and other sciences are working together for the good of public health. Ettinger will facilitate an understanding of the global and species-spanning nature of ONE HEALTH. If we bridge the species-divide we will advance understanding of medicine.
