About Event

A One Medicine Approach to Emerging Diseases


A conference for human and animal health professionals, 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 2016 One Medicine Symposium will feature a broad range of topics related to emerging diseases in humans, animals, and the environment focusing on providing up to date information on recent and ongoing disease issues and critical partnerships for preparedness and response activities. This year’s program will incorporate both traditional lectures and interactive panel discussions to encourage participants to ask questions and discuss how they have approached or might approach emerging disease-related challenges in their own professions and communities. Participants will have the opportunity to attend talks related to their own discipline as well as outside their area of expertise to encourage knowledge sharing and collaboration across disciplines.


Conference Objectives:

  • Describe the One Medicine/One Health concept.
  • List three reasons to use a One Medicine/One Health approach to prepare and respond to emerging diseases.
  • Provide two examples of how two agencies or sectors involved in preparedness/response activities for emerging diseases have worked together.
