ZOOEYIA SPEAKER SERIES: Dr. Rob Billington/ Dr. Tasha Epp

The One Health Club is excited to collaborate with the One Health Committee of the College of Medicine to bring you our last speaker series of the 2013/2014 school year.

‘One Health’ and the relationship between humans and animals are often discussed in the context of zoonotic disease. In focusing on the risk of human-animal interaction, the benefits of the human-animal bond can be overlooked. “zooeyia” is a term to describe the health benefits of companion animals and to provide a contrast to the term “zoonosis” which focuses on the risks animals pose to human health. Although the term ‘zooeyia’ is new, the human-animal bond is not. This speaker series will focus on the health benefits of companion animals, from both an animal health, and human health perspective.

FREE LUNCH WILL BE PROVIDED

A Veterinarians View of Zooeyia:
On April 2, Dr. Tasha Epp will present the topic of “zooeyia” from a veterinary prospective.
When: April 2, 2014 at 12:30p

A Family Physicians View of Zooeyia:
On April 3, Dr. Rob Billington will present the topic of ‘zooeyia’ from the prospective of a family physician.
