ISDS One Health Symposium - Challenges and Solutions to Implementing One Health
2018 was our inaugural year for the addition of the One Health Symposium. Recognizing a growing interest in the connections between public health, animal health and environmental health, this one-day event was launched to provide added content and expert speakers to our traditional offerings. With presenters including keynote speaker, Dr. Laura Kahn, MD, MPH, MPP, FACP, from Princeton University, (pictured), Dr. Baba Soumare, DVM, PhD,MSEpi from the United Nations FAO and presenters from industry, CDC, and the USDA, attendees were treated to an intensive day of learning unavailable in other settings.
As you review the program below, please plan to attend our second One Health Symposium at our 2019 Conference in San Diego.
January 30th, 2018, Rosen Plaza Hotel, Orlando, Florida
ISDS is pleased to expand our One Health tracks from the Annual Conference into a full-day symposium with leading experts presenting on One Health disciplines. This conference is geared for practitioners in veterinary medicine, environmental and public health fields whose success relies upon expertise in cross-disciplinary best practices of One Health. The conference theme of addressing challenges to implementation of One Health will run through the day's presentations.
The morning sessions will include a keynote address from One Health expert Laura Kahn, MD plus three update presentations from CDC, USDA and the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization.
The afternoon will feature three panels on Antimicrobial Resistance, Overcoming One Health Barriers, and Food Security. Each panel will feature three experts, each of whom will give a brief presentation and then participate with an audience Q&A session.
Below is the program schedule for the One Health Symposium. As with any conference, it is subject to minor changes. This page will maintain the most current information on the program and speakers.
Coffee breaks and lunch are included in the registration fee.
