Posted June 21, 2017

kreceksmallRosina (Tammi) C. Krecek, a research professor in Global One Health in Texas A&M’s College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM), was featured on the news page of the national One Health Initiative website.

The article, “Experienced Texas A&M University (USA) One Health Professor Enhances a Dynamic One Health Program,” published on Thursday, June 8, examines Krecek’s work in the field since 2015 and as interim assistant dean of One Health.

“Dr. Krecek works within a dynamic, expanding One Health program under the auspices of an extraordinary CVM Dean, Dr. Eleanor M. Green,” the article reads. “One recent dramatic example of the visionary One Health TAMU activities was demonstrated with a Scowcroft Institute of International Affairs at the Bush School of Government and Public Service report entitled ‘The Growing Threat of Pandemics: Enhancing Domestic and International Biosecurity—March 2017.’”

The article also outlines significant achievements during Krecek’s tenure as interim assistant dean of One Health at Texas A&M that have advanced the One Health initiative to the next level, including three recent grant awards for the establishment of new interdisciplinary programs, with several awarded; and the critical compilation of performance metrics for campus-wide One Health research to demonstrate positive outcomes in various research, education and outreach programs.

Krecek has more than 30 years of international experience at building sustainable One Health research, education and outreach programs in Africa, the Caribbean, and in the U.S. Her focus has been a collaborative and interdisciplinary approach for diagnosis and interventions to prevent and manage zoonotic parasitic and infectious diseases which impact resource-poor communities. She established a successful international agricultural consultancy in Sub-Saharan Africa, which addresses societal issues through novel One Health solutions.

Two of her overall strengths are establishing international sustainable strategic partnerships, and leading teams to successfully achieve their goals.

Krecek currently serves with distinction on the One Health Commission’s Board of Directors.
