About 60 future health science professionals gathered at the University of Saskatchewan for Canada’s first student workshop on One Health from August 24-26, 2012. Initiated by the WCVM and supported by Pfizer Animal Health, the three-day workshop’s helped U of S health science students recognize linkages between human, animal and environmental health.
The workshop was the ideal fit for the U of S where One Health is a signature research area. As well, the U of S is the only Canadian university with a full range of health science colleges on one campus.
During the weekend, five high-profile speakers from North America shared insights with students and facilitated group discussions. Guest speakers included:
