The One Health Day Symposium brings together multiple disciplines working locally, nationally and internationally to address the spread of disease, promote health and emphasize the connection among humans, animals and the environment. Experts from Ohio State, health agencies and universities abroad will share their insight on One Health-related issues during the symposium on November 1 – 2 at the Drake Union Performance and Event Center at Ohio State.
The symposium is being held in recognition of One Health Day, which is celebrated annually on November 3, and 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, attendees will demonstrate their support for One Health worldwide.
Abstracts are now being accepted from students for a poster presentation. The deadline for submissions is October 19. Interested students can submit their abstract through the online submission form.
The symposium is organized by the Global One Health initiative, College of Education and Human Ecology, College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, College of Nursing, College of Public Health, Office of Advancement, Office of International Affairs and OSU Extension.
