ACVP and ASVCP Joint Plenary Session: Pathology of One Health

Session Chair: Kris Helke, DVM PhD DACVP | Jana M. Ritter, DVM DACVP

The plenary session addresses a topic with broad importance to the field of veterinary pathology. The 2022 plenary session will focus on One Health. The objective is to improve the attendee’s base of knowledge in several key aspects of the scientific topic that have gained importance due to recent scientific advancements. The plenary keynote speaker is Brian Bird, DVM, MSPH, PhD, Director One Health Institute Laboratory, UC Davis. Many diseases that affect humans also affect or originate from veterinary species. New strategies to identify and study diseases in other species will help advance human medicine. Planned talks include topics from leaders in the field of One Health focusing on animal sentinel events, environmental changes, tumor studies, and coronaviral reservoirs and how they impact and interact with human health. We will share achievements, challenges, and future directions in these growing and often overlooked areas of biomedical research and clinical practice.
