By Susanne Rockwell on October 23, 2017

UC Davis students and professionals will gather on Saturday, Nov. 4, the day after international One Health Day, for a symposium about how to change the ways planetary health challenges are addressed.

Organized by Students for One Health and the UC Davis One Health Institute, this is a science and social event to explore intersecting disciplines that study the health of water-related ecosystems, animals and humans.

Participants can expect an in-depth conversation around the challenges of interdisciplinary communication and collaboration, and exemplary graduate and undergraduate students who research interdisciplinary topics will be prominently featured.

Panel topics

  • “The True Cost of Climate Change”
  • “Death Downstream”
  • “One Health Science to Policy”
  • “Water Use and Abuse During Drought”
  • “Freshwater and Marine Ecology and Conservation”
  • “Tip of the Iceberg: Current Student Research”

Registration check-in starts at 8:30 a.m. Use the EventBright ticketing site to sign up for the symposium.
