Join Us for the
One Health One Medicine Symposium

St. George’s University Grenada, West Indies

October 20-22, 2017


One Health One Medicine is the convergence of human, animal, and ecosystem health. All animal species including man are interrelated—veterinary or medical knowledge gained in one species benefits the others. Join us at St. George’s University on the beautiful island of Grenada, where we are again assembling a network of physicians, public health professionals, veterinarians, and researchers to focus on One Health One Medicine and the impact it is having on the health of populations around the world.


The One Health One Medicine Initiative at St. George’s University has evolved over the last decade and more recently through a series of SGU-sponsored OHOM conferences, open access courses, and workshops. The initiative is aimed to help facilitate the further development of opportunities locally and, in collaboration with international institutions, to address global health challenges affecting the health of people, animals, and the environment. The One Health One Medicine Initiative serves to strengthen synergies between the Schools of Medicine, Veterinary Medicine, Graduate Studies, and Arts and Sciences.
