One Health Leadership Experience

A special opportunity for students enrolled in U of S health science colleges
August 22-24, 2014

Whether you plan to be a veterinarian, public health nurse, environmental specialist or a physician, you will want to play an integral 
role in developing One Health — the future 
of global health care.

One Health is a global initiative that encourages collaboration among all health disciplines with the goal of attaining optimal health for people, animals and the environment.

This annual three-day workshop will introduce you to the concept of One Health. Throughout the weekend, you will interact with high-calibre One Health leaders from across North America. Group discussions and social events also give you time to meet other students from your own college as well as from other U of S colleges and schools.

The 2014 U of S One Health Leadership Experience will be held from Friday to Sunday, August 22-24, 2014. Download the conference's schedule (updated August 18, 2014).
