Seattle conference showcases connections between animal and human health
The fourth annual Zoobiquity Conference, held Nov. 1, 2014 at UW and the Woodland Park Zoo, will focus 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.
The Zoobiquity Conference takes place annually in different cities and began following publication of the book, Zoobiquity. CE credit from WSU is available for veterinarians and veterinary technicians.
