The 2020 One Health Student Workshop will take place virtually this year! November 6th and 7th, join us to hear 12 prominent speakers in the field of One Health, a career panel, and more! Visit our website or contact Sonia Hernandez for more information.
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. If you missed it, and for a full description, please visit the workshop website (below).
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.
