Vector-Borne Diseases

Registrations for this event have now closed. Please visit the Merck Animal Health Showroom.

About the event

One Health is a collaborative, multi-disciplinary approach to solving important health issues that recognizes the connection between people, animals and their shared environment. A key health issue that would benefit from a One Health approach is vector-borne diseases. The global landscape for vector-borne diseases is changing, and the impact is seen in increasing risks for people and animals. The One Health approach is critical for understanding and managing these risks for people and companion animals. Hear from experts in infectious disease, public health, parasitology and veterinary medicine as they discuss applying a One Health lens to this developing global issue.

Registration for this educational event is open to all members of the veterinary community (RACE pending – 2.5 hours).

Presented by Merck Animal Health.
