UNC Hosts One Medicine Symposium

The eleventh annual One Medicine symposium, “Disasters and Diseases: A One-Medicine Approach to Current Challenges,” will be held December 10-11 at the Sheraton Imperial Hotel and Convention Center in Durham, N.C.

The conference brings together professionals including physicians, nurses, veterinarians, veterinary technicians, public health professionals, environmental health specialists, agriculture professionals, wildlife professionals, and federal, military, state and local emergency management and disaster responders.

The conference sessions aim to describe the One Medicine/One Health concept and how to apply it to challenges affecting human and animal health, disaster preparedness and emerging diseases management.

Participants will be provided with take-home tools to improve awareness and understanding of topics from a One Medicine perspective, promote collaboration across professional disciplines and enhance preparedness for natural or human-caused disasters, infectious disease outbreaks and other challenges affecting human and animal health.

Registration fee is $100. For agenda, registration information and other details, see www.onemedicinenc.org, or call 919.515.2261.
