Why should those working in human health be concerned about the health of other animals and the environment? The concept of One Health, led by the RSM Comparative Medicine Section, recognises the co-dependency of both environmental factors and the health of all species, including man.

This event is designed to bring together interested professionals from various disciplines to explore One Health and have the opportunity to become engaged in One Health initiatives going forward.

Join us to delve into a range of One Health topics and foster understanding of the insights and collaboration between professionals to encourage initiatives involving one health principles.

The optional evening meeting is in association with Soulsby Foundation.
