Join us for the 5th Annual One Health Symposium scheduled for Saturday, November 3, 2018 on UC Davis campus.  One Health is the nexus of animal health, human health and environmental health, and UC Davis is uniquely positioned in this field.  Learn from the only school in the world that has #1 veterinary medicine program, a strong medical school as well as top ranked programs in environmental and animal science.

This year we are excited to have Dr. Laura Kahn, a world-renowned physician and research scholar as the keynote Calvin Schwabe lecturer. A native of California, Dr. Kahn holds a B.S. degree in Nursing from UCLA, an M.D. from Mt. Sinai School of Medicine, an M.P.H. from Columbia University and an M.P.P. from Princeton University.  She has received the Presidential Award for Meritorious Service from the American Association of Public Health Physicians in 2016 and the American Veterinary Epidemiology Society awarded her with their higher honor for her work in One Health: the KF Meyer-James H. Steele Gold Head Cane Award. Her talk for this symposium is entitled: A One Health Perspective on Food Security in the 21st Century.

Three exciting roundtable sessions, featuring experts from their fields, are scheduled for the day. Topics will include the following:

  • Antimicrobial Resistance
  • Environmental Sustainability
  • The Urban Rural Interface--Emerging Infectious Diseases in the Developing World

A wine and cheese reception will immediately follow the event. We hope you will stay and join the panel for more interactive discussion.
