RALEIGH – Pesticides and their effect on human and animal health will be the focus of the Tenth One Medicine Symposium. This year’s symposium will focus on the history, regulation, current uses and impact of pesticides related to human, animal and environmental health.

One Medicine will take place Thursday, Dec. 12, at the Sheraton Imperial Hotel and Convention Center in Durham. It is hosted by the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services and the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services with other partners. Registration is $50 and continuing education credits are available for many disciplines.

The program encourages human, animal, and environmental health professionals to work together to improve awareness and understanding of the topics from a one-medicine perspective and to foster objective, intellectual discussion across disciplines. Physicians, nurses, veterinarians, veterinary technicians, public health professionals, environmental health specialists, agriculture professionals, wildlife professionals and government partners are invited to attend.
