11th One Medicine [One Health] Symposium - December 10-11, 2014
Sheraton Imperial Hotel and Convention Center | Durham, North Carolina


A conference for physicians, nurses, veterinarians, veterinary technicians, public health professionals, environmental health specialists, agriculture professionals, wildlife professionals, and federal, military, state and local emergency management and disaster responders.

The One Medicine Symposium is hosted by the NC Department of Agriculture and NC Department of Health and Human Services in cooperation with NC State University College of Veterinary Medicine, UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health, USDA APHIS Veterinary Services, and NCSU Office of Professional Development. This national conference provides professionals from a variety of backgrounds with current information and take-home tools to improve awareness and understanding of the topics from a One Medicine perspective, promote collaboration across professional disciplines, and enhance preparedness for natural or man-made disasters, infectious disease outbreaks, and other challenges affecting human and animal health.

Program Description: The 2014 One Medicine Symposium will feature a broad range of topics related to disasters and emerging and zoonotic diseases. These are the types of challenges that require professionals in many disciplines to partner together and work outside of their routine, everyday duties and their comfort zones. Participants will gain valuable knowledge from real-world event and case discussions on disaster preparedness, response, and recovery as well as emerging zoonotic diseases and outbreaks. This year’s program will feature both traditional lectures and interactive audience discussion guided by experienced facilitators to encourage participants to consider how they might approach these challenges in their own professions and communities.

Conference Objectives:

  • Describe the One Medicine/One Health concept and how to apply it to challenges affecting human and animal health.
  • Describe the One Medicine approach to disaster preparedness, response, and recovery.
  • Describe the current status of, and One Medicine approach for, researching, monitoring, and managing select emerging diseases.
