You are invited to attend the 2018 Centre for Public Health and Zoonoses scientific symposium!

This event brings together individuals with an interest in one or many pillars of public health and zoonotic disease. As a one day event, the symposium promises to be full of presentations and posters on new research, emerging diseases, technology developments and more. in 2017, we had over 180 participants, 25 presentations and 40 posters. Past topics have ranged from antimicrobial resistance, One Health, and northern health to Lyme disease surveillance and food safety. This year, we hope to cover the same vast number of topics and provide our participants with a detailed look into some fascinating research shaping our future. If public health or zoonotic disease research interests you, consider joining us on Friday, June 8th, in Rozanski Hall.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Registration is free, although we ask that before registering, be sure you are able to attend some or all of the day in an effort to keep an accurate count of attendees for hospitality. If there are changes to your ability to attend please let us know at cphaz@uoguelph.ca
