Invitation - One Health: acting as one

One Health

You are invited to attend JCU’s first World One Health Day Event on the afternoon of the 3rd November 2016, 3-5pm at the Padua Theatre DB040-105 Townsville campus and in Cairns A021.001 / Singapore Boardroom A3.01 / Mt Isa Yacca Tutorial Room / Thursday Island TI001.002 and Mackay VMR if required.

One Health Day is an international campaign co-ordinated by the One Health Commission, the One Health Initiative Autonomous pro bono Team and the One Health Platform Foundation.

The aim of One Health Day is to bring international attention to the need for One Health approaches to global “grand challenges”  and to showcase One Health initiatives in action around the world.

The One Health Day campaign is designed to engage as many individuals and disciplines as possible in One Health education and awareness events, as trans-disciplinarity is a key element of One Health approaches. The day also aims to inspire the further development of a wide range of One health projects and partnerships.

JCU will also be dedicating this annual event to the late Professor Rick Speare (https://www.jcu.edu.au/@jcu/vale-emeritus-professor-rick-speare-am)

JCU’s event will be panel-led and audience discussion around how discipline specific expertise could contribute to the better management of a real life scenario (3.30-5pm), preceded by afternoon tea (3.00-3.30pm). 

Each panelist will briefly talk on their disciplinary perspective on the topic ie. the value-addedness of that disciplinary approach. We will have six speakers covering the following areas: Environmental Sciences (DTES), Veterinary Public Health (DTHM), Health Systems (DTHM), Health Promotion/Communications (DTHM), Societies and Culture (DTES); and Research (DTHM).
