2018 One Health Day Symposium

One World, One Health

Understanding the Implications for One Health in Your Backyard and Abroad

The One Health Day Symposium brings together multiple disciplines working locally, nationally and globally to address the spread of disease, promote health and emphasize the connection among humans, animals and the environment.

What is One Health Day?

One Health Day, celebrated annually on November 3, is an international campaign co-coordinated by the One Health Commission, the One Health Initiative and the One Health Platform Foundation. The goal of One Health Day is to bring attention around the world to the need for One Health interactions and for the world to ‘see them in action’. The One Health Day campaign is designed to engage as many individuals as possible from as many arenas as possible in One Health education and awareness events, and to generate an inspiring array of projects worldwide.

By participating in Ohio State’s One Health Day Symposium, you are demonstrating your support for One Health worldwide.
