One Health Symposium
College of Public Health, Medical and Veterinary Sciences
The College of Public Health, Medical and Veterinary Science is holding a Symposium on One Health. This one day symposium will showcase some of the work currently being undertaken at JCU, explore areas where JCU can contribute to One Health, particularly in the Tropics and Northern Australia. It will also look towards future research, partnerships and research translation opportunities.
Not sure what One Health is, then this is an opportunity to learn more and engage in this important space. Think it might have something to do with your work, then come along and share your thoughts, experience and ideas. Looking for an area to research, come along and hear about what needs to be done. Want to be part of a bigger research collaboration then this is an opportunity to work across a range of disciplines.
Who should come?
If you have a set of skills which can be applied to solving One Health problems then we would like to see you at the Symposium, this might include:
