Highlighting the wide clinical and research applications of One Health, UC Davis’ inaugural event will feature presentations on infectious disease, comparative medicine, international outreach and more.
The symposium – set to take place on August 24 – will address health issues currently affecting much of the globe, such as emerging infectious diseases, as well as common health concerns that affect both humans and animals, such as diabetes and cancer.
Karl Jandrey, director of the Centre for Continuing Professional Education, said: “With the recent outbreaks of Ebola and other infectious diseases around the world, it is important health care professionals gather at events like the One Health Symposium to share thought-provoking ideas that show interplay between all of Earth’s inhabitants.
“UC Davis physicians, veterinarians, ecologists, biologists and stakeholders will all be at this event to discuss and debate many important topics that impact us all. The symposium will be a great showcase of the strengths we have in One Health at UC Davis in both the School of Medicine and the School of Veterinary Medicine.”
