Conferences

The Zoobiquity 2014 conference focuses on how rapidly changing local and global environments affect the health of humans and animals. Through case presentations and interactive discussions, human and veterinary medicine experts as well as environmental health scientists will explore the clinical overlaps between human  and animal response to environmental factors, including climate, the built environment, air pollution, and domestic violence. By fostering this cutting-edge “One Health” dialogue, the conference will demonstrate how a species-spanning approach to medicine can improve human, animal, and environmental health. 

PRE-REGISTRATION IS CLOSED.
