Dr. Kerry Rood will discuss the concept of “One Health” and what the veterinarian’s role is with regards to antibiotic resistance, zoonotic disease and climate change. Antibiotic resistance is a serious global threat. Because of the unique human-animal bond, the risk of zoonotic disease is increased. Couple the threat of antibiotic resistance and the fact that the majority of newly emerging diseases are animal related, the conversation of One Health is timely. Attendees will appreciate the unique position that veterinarians hold at the interface of humans and animals and will be inspired to embrace the conversation of One Health.
