Barrett Slenning gained an MS degree in Economics/Nutrition and another MS in Epidemiology, before earning his DVM – all from UC Davis. He is also a federally credentialed emergency responder. His career began with 8-years in a mostly dairy-based practice in the central valley of California, where Barrett created and delivered production medicine services for the clinic's 40+ dairy clients, and served small animal, exotic, and equine clients as well. He joined NCSU in 1989, and is the Veterinary College’s Director for Agrosecurity & Biopreparedness. He teaches in all 4 years of the curriculum, manages the three year educational program of the CVM’s Teaching Animal Unit, and participates in several animal/public health committees for North Carolina, federal agencies, and agricultural organizations. He is licensed in California and North Carolina, is Tier II Federally Accredited, and is a Federally Credentialed second level Veterinary Disaster Responder. Since 1996 Barrett has focused on food security, with the main theme on agricultural disaster preparation, response, and recovery. Lastly, he is a founding member of the NC One Health Collaborative, a group promoting the idea that human health, animal health, and environmental health are inextricably linked.
