The University of California, Davis School of Veterinary Medicine is set to host the inaugural One Health Symposium on August 24, 2014.
The symposium will address health issues currently affecting much of the world, such as emerging infectious diseases, as well as common health concerns that affect both humans and animals, like diabetes and cancer.
Dr. 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 that 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 that we have in One Health at UC Davis in both the School of Medicine and the School of Veterinary Medicine."
The event is open to all and webinar access is available for those unable to attend in person. More information and registration for the symposium can be found at www.vetmed.ucdavis.edu/ce
