Aspiring Medics Evening Lecture series - Dr David Harris on "One Health" @ Piran Theatre | England | United Kingdom

It is increasingly being recognised across the world that the health of humans, animals, and ecosystems are deeply and inextricably entwined. As a result, there are many crises where doctors, or vets, or environmentalists alone cannot resolve the problem.

The One Health movement is a response to this, seeking to bring professionals from all spheres together to address potential or existing risks that originate at the animal-human-ecosystem interface. Whether the patient is a human from Hong Kong, a rain forest in sub-Saharan Africa, or a dog in the UK, the problems and often the solutions are the same.

In this short lecture, Dr David Harris MRCVS, a vet and lecturer at Cornwall College, will introduce the idea and importance of One Health, in particular focussing on emerging diseases, antimicrobial resistance, zoonoses and anthroponoses and barriers to One Health. 

We do hope that you will be able to attend the evening, spaces are limited so please email to book your place.
