and Wildlife Diseases
Virtual Student Workshop
Nov. 6th – 7th 2020
The University of Georgia would like to welcome you to our 2nd Conservation Medicine-One Health Student Workshop. The purpose of this workshop is to provide beginner through advanced content on the fields of conservation medicine-One Health to a variety of students.
If you are interested in a career in conservation medicine, One Health, wildlife disease investigation/ecology, zoonoses, or medicine, this workshop is for you!
This workshop will be held completely VIRTUALLY through the Zoom platform. After months of planning, we have thought "outside of the box" to come up with ways to keep the experience interesting, interactive, and useful despite being online. Feel free to have a look at the resources tab to get a feel for the ways in which we are supporting our attendees this year.
The Workshop will be held on November 6th and 7th, 2020. The tentative agenda, including a fantastic lineup of speakers, two Career Panels and several virtual social and fun activities can be found here. The topics range from conservation work conducted by zoos to interesting wildlife pathology cases to comprehensive health assessments of free-living wildlife populations.
Registration cost will be used to provide prizes and offset the costs of organizing the conference.
This workshop is organized by Dr. Sonia M. Hernandez and several student organizations at UGA: the Student Chapter of the WDA, the Warnell Pre-Vet Club, the UGA CVM Zoological Medicine Club, and One Health Club @ UGA. We'd love to get in touch no matter your registration status - feel free to reach out!
We hope to see you soon!
