UW Veterinary Students To Host National Symposium



Published:

The University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine is gearing up for the SAVMA Symposium from Thursday, March 11 to Saturday, March 13.

More than 1,500 students from across the United States are expected to attend the SAVMA event, which stands for Student American Veterinary Medical Association. The symposium brings together veterinary medical students to learn about the latest science and technology the profession has to offer, event organizers said.

A team of college students organizes the event at Monona Terrace. It is funded by veterinarians and the veterinary industry. This year’s symposium will offer various lectures and labs that include food animal science.

Highlights include keynote speaker, Christopher Olsen, associate dean for academic affairs and professor of public health at the university. His talk will discuss influenza pandemics, including the 2009-10 pandemic, as diseases at the interface of animal and human health. 

He will emphasize the importance of a One Health approach, integrating human and animal health, in pandemic preparedness and response. Click here for symposium information, including a schedule of events.
