Evening Program:

One Health is: “a worldwide strategy for expanding interdisciplinary collaborations and communications in all aspects of health care for humans, animals and the environment”,   The One Health Initiative promotes the idea that the health of people, animals and the environment are inextricably linked. 

The Northeast Branch of the American Society for Microbiology, in association with MCPHS University and the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine, Tufts University, is sponsoring this forum and public dialogue on One Health on Monday, September 30, 2013, 6:00PM-8:30PM, on the 9th floor of the Fuller Conference Center at MCPHS University (formerly Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences) in Worcester, MA.  The forum will feature a panel that will consist of a physician, veterinarian, microbiologist and environmental scientist.  The panel will present their perspectives on One Health and then engage the audience in a discussion of the meaning of One Health, its inclusion in educational and training programs, incorporating the perspective into career paths, and how the One Health Initiative can be promoted generally.  Invited are undergraduates in pre-professional programs, graduate students in the biosciences, health professions students and post-graduate trainees, although all who are interested are invited.  A light supper will be provided.  The event is free, but registration is required
