We are happy to announce that we sponsored the first UGA Conservation

Medicine One Health Wildlife Diseases Student Workshop on Nov 2-4th, 2018.

We received approximately 170 attendees, half of which were from outside UGA,

from a diverse student population of under- grad- and veterinary students. Most

of our non-UGA students were from nearby SE schools, but we also had some

from Nebraska, Michigan, California, Costa Rica and Puerto Rico! The workshop

involved seminars and wet labs. Most importantly, we held a 3-hr Career Round

Table on Friday night, during which time students were able to ask a group of 6

panelists about different paths for developing a career working on wildlife and

One health and conservation.

However, we did record the seminars and will be posting a link to view those

talks at a later date. Stay tuned!

The workshop was implemented with the help of members of the Student Chapter of the Wildlife Disease Association, the Warnell Pre-Vet Club and the College of Vet Med’s Zoological Medicine Club, with in-kind support from the Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources, SCWDS and the College of Vet Med.

Registration closed!
