George Washington University in Washington D.C.

We celebrated One Health Day with a series of speakers, all focused on national and global issues that utilize a One Health approach.

On Monday through Wednesday (October 31st – November 2nd), one hour-long lunchtime discussions were hosted each focused on the collaborative and multidisciplinary One Health approach to a particular health problem. On Thursday (November 3rd) a panel discussion was hosted in which panelists and audience members engaged with each other in discussion on the One Health approach towards parasitic diseases. Faculty and students (undergraduate, graduate, and doctorate students) were invited to all events as were professionals from private and public sectors throughout Washington DC for networking. A light lunch was provided to guests before and after the events. If individuals are unable to make it to our event, all discussions were live streamed on the public Facebook page GW One Heath.
