The concept of One Health advocates cooperation between human and veterinary medicine and wildlife ecology to combat human health risks and promote health of all species and the environment. The morning session will include a keynote address and a panel of leading practitioners and researchers representing different perspectives on public health and public lands with input from a current public health student. The afternoon session will deal with the current understanding of disease vectors which have had a profound impact on human health. Changes in climate have been implicated in emerging risks from vector borne diseases. Future climate change is anticipated to impact the distribution of other vector borne diseases e.g., West Nile virus, malaria.
Leading researchers and practitioners will discuss these issues with input from a current public health student.
