Dr. Cheryl Stroud

will be presenting

Advancing the One Health Movement: 

Our Ray of Hope for the Future

Dr. Stroud has enjoyed professional experiences in Industry, Academic Research / Teaching, Private Veterinary Practice and One Health. She grew up on a small, hobby farm in central Mississippi where she was surrounded by cows, horses, cats, dogs and open spaces. Before Veterinary School she worked in the Poultry Industry as Manager of a Quality Control lab for a prominent, vertically-integrated, poultry

Company screening poultry feeds and feed ingredients for pesticide residues. After graduation from Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine she worked briefly in small animal Veterinary practice before going to North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine for a Masters and PhD in Endocrine Physiology. She performed basic research at Pennsylvania State University studying many topics ranging from variant molecular forms of prolactin and growth hormone to reproductive cycles of women from populations around the world. Dr. Stroud returned to private Veterinary practice when her family moved to Illinois in 1996 for her husband, also a DVM, PhD, to become Director of the Division of Education and Research for the American Veterinary Medical Association. Returning to North Carolina when he retired, she was instrumental in 2010 in creation of the North Carolina One Health Collaborative, Chairing its Steering Committee for over three years and facilitating collaborative creation of an interinstitutional One Health course, One Health:  Philosophy to Practical Integration of Human, Animal and Environmental Health, cross-listed at Duke, UNC and NC State. 2017 was the 7th years of its offering.

Dr. Stroud was selected as AVMA representative to the One Health Commission (OHC) in spring 2011, was appointed Vice Chair of the OHC Board in 2012 and became Executive Director of the Commission late in 2013, moving the Commission from Iowa State to the Research Triangle Park region of central North Carolina. Her primary focus since 2010 has been educating, locally, nationally and globally, about One Health. In 2013 she served on a National Biodefense Science Board working group on Situational Awareness, Strategic Implementation and Bio-Surveillance. Cheryl believes strongly in interdisciplinary collaborations and shares updates about the One Health movement with audiences around the world. She seeks, via the Commission, to connect One Health stakeholders into active Teams, creating strategic networks and partnerships that educate about the full scope of and critical need for One Health. She dreams of a day when One Health advocates around the world join hands and unite in a coordinated, true, Global One Health Alliance. She and her husband have a grown son and daughter who still don’t ‘get’ their crazy mom. In her ‘spare’ time she enjoys horseback riding, gardening, hiking, writing, sewing, reading, making and listening to music and traveling nationally and internationally. Her forte is bringing people together.
