Topics considered will include those covering the impact of One Health issues (animal-human-ecosystem interaction, zoonoses, food safety, and Veterinary Public Health), especially those related to Health Equity. The program will consist of two or three 90 minute sessions of four 15 to 20 minute presentations along with an additional poster session addressing the following suggested topics:
  • How does Veterinary Public Health support One Health issues?
  • Occupational risks for zoonotic disease exposures (including those associated with pathogens developing antimicrobial resistance)
  • One Health epidemiology and informatics: How can technological advancements help surveillance, diagnosis, reporting, and response to diseases and other Public Health issues?
  • One Health surveillance of emerging zoonoses, vector-borne diseases, and the link to ecosystem change.
  • One Health: Connecting the human-animal bond and the impacts this dynamic relationship has on the environment.
All accepted abstracts will be grouped into appropriate sessions using the above suggestions as a guide. However, all Veterinary Public Health and One Health topics will be considered. Submitted abstracts may also be appropriate for planned co-sessions with other APHA sections.
