Olivia Barner
Hello everyone! My name is Olivia Barner and I am a senior majoring in Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences with a minor in International Agriculture. I am from just north of Pittsburgh and have been involved with PVC since I started my freshman year. I have been on the One Health Committee since then and have been on the executive board for the last 2 years serving as a One Health Chair which gives me great joy! I participated in the APVMA National Symposium and have helped with both Symposium and Stayover the past few years as well. I also helped run a summer camp for a week in 2018 with Dr. Acar to show high school students the great education Penn State provides. I am excited for this upcoming year to make the One Health committee continue it's education and outreach to our community! We are expanding our One Health Newsletter, continuing our relationships with Penn State Extension and the Pennsylvania One Health Task Force, and planning a campus event around November 3rd (International One Health Day). After graduation, I plan on pursuing a dual degree (DVM/MPH) and working in government to help track zoonoses! If you have any questions or would just like to talk about One Health, please contact me!
