The inaugural Iowa One Health Conference will take place on Saturday, November 5th, 2016, at the University of Iowa College of Public Health. One Health promotes interdisciplinary efforts to create optimal results in the interconnected domains of human, animal, and the environmental health. The 2016 Iowa One Health Conference will bring together a multidisciplinary cast of students and professionals in relevant fields to learn and discuss how the concept of One Health can help drive positive change in the health of each of its three domains. Key features of the conference include lectures, breakout sessions, and an interactive public health problem-solving session.
We are also happy to welcome Dr. Daniel Chertow with the NIH as our keynote speaker (profile). Dr. Chertow will talk about his clinical experiences with Ebola, and the need to set up systems of individual patient care in large disease outbreaks. He will also discuss the process and need for setting up infrastructures in the developing world for handling these outbreaks.
If you have any questions regarding the conference, feel free to contact Neil Vezeau (firstname.lastname@example.org). Registration and a call for abstracts will be announced in the upcoming months.
