The One Medicine Symposium will not be held in 2017. Watch for dates for the next One Medicine Symposium!

The One Medicine Symposium was an annual conference held from 2003-2016 geared towards physicians, nurses, veterinarians, veterinary technicians, public health professionals, environmental health specialists, agriculture professionals, wildlife professionals, and federal, military, state and local emergency management and disaster response professionals.

The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services and the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services co-hosted the One Medicine Symposium in cooperation with the NC State University College of Veterinary Medicine, UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health, USDA APHIS Veterinary Services, and NCSU Office of Professional Development.

The purpose of the program was to educate and provide professionals from a variety of backgrounds with current information and take-home tools to improve awareness and understanding of health-related topics from a One Medicine perspective, promote collaboration across professional disciplines, and enhance preparedness for natural or man-made disasters, infectious disease outbreaks, and other challenges affecting human and animal health.

On this page, you will find links to some of the PowerPoint presentations from past events.
