Background: The One Health (OH) concept, formerly referred to as ‘One Medicine’ in the later part of the 20th century, has gained exceptional popularity in the early 21st century, and numerous academic and non-academic institutions have developed One Health programs.Objectives: To summarize One Health training, research, and outreach activities originating in North America.Methods: We used data from extensive electronic records maintained by the One Health Commission (OHC) (www.onehealthcommission.org/) and the One Health Initiative (www.onehealthinitiative.com/) and from web-based searches, combined with the corporate knowledge of the authors and their professional contacts. Finally, a call was released to members of the OHC’s Global One Health Community listserv, asking that they populate a Google document with information on One Health training, research, and outreach activities in North American academic and non-academic institutions.Results: A current snapshot of North American One Health training, research, and outreach activities as of August 2016 has evolved.Conclusions: It is clear that the One Health concept has gained considerable recognition during the first decade of the 21st century, with numerous current training and research activities carried out among North American academic, non-academic, government, corporate, and non-profit entities.Keywords: One Health; research; training; human; animal; environmental(Published: 29 November 2016)Citation: Infection Ecology and Epidemiology 2016, 6: 33680 - http://dx.doi.org/10.3402/iee.v6.33680
