U of S One Health Club

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

Leave a comment

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.
