Overview

Our conferences educate about the link between animals, people, and the environment and the role this One Health Triad plays in reducing risk factors associated with the food we eat.  Lectures, field trips, and team-building group work, provide the basic knowledge that can be applied to taking a multidisciplinary approach to complex problems related to food safety and security, environmental, and water quality issues.
