Explore environmental issues and their effects on human and animal health at a new symposium at Phipps.

Scientists, medical and public health professionals, animal health professionals, ecologists, architecture and green building professionals, community officials and organizers, educators, and students are invited to join us for One Health, One Planet, an exciting new symposium held at Phipps to explore the interconnectedness of environmental, human and animal health and examine the relationship between health and the built and natural environments in which we live, work, learn and play. Through this novel connection between the One Health Initiative and Phipps’s Research Institute for Biophilia and Science Engagement, we seek to unite experts from disparate fields around the shared goals of tackling environmental issues, addressing disease prevention and improving health and well-being.

Where: Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, Pittsburgh, PA

Who: Medical and public health professionals, animal health professionals, scientists, ecologists, architecture and green building professionals, community officials and organizers, educators, and students

Why: In this century we are seeing unprecedented changes in the earth’s environmental and physical processes. Climate change, air pollution, reduced availability of clean water, and persistent toxic chemicals threaten human and animal health and well-being.  

To build a shared interdisciplinary vision of “health,” each expert-led conference session will explore environmental issues and their effects on human and animal health, defining and building on each through the lens of the others:

1) Environmental issues and effects on human health
2) Environmental issues and effects on animal health
3) Healthy ecosystems, healthy communities
4) Finding inspiration in nature to promote health and improve the places where we live, work, learn and play

Each session will include a panel discussion to build a base for future collaboration.

The One Health Initiative is a movement to forge collaborations between physicians, veterinarians, scientific-health and environmentally related disciplines. One Health promotes strategies to expand interdisciplinary collaboration and communication in all aspects of healthcare for humans, animals and the environment.

The Phipps Research Institute for Biophilia and Science Engagement acknowledges the connection between human and environmental health. The institute studies the built and natural environments and their intersection with human health and wellness.

You are kindly invited to participate in ESWI’s colloquium on influenza preventing policies for children. The event will gather key opinion leaders in paediatrics, family medicine, public health policy, regulatory affairs and academic influenza research.
 
ESWI organizes this scientific symposium in response to the observation that – despite WHO’s recommendations to routinely vaccinate young children against influenza – only five EU Member States have actually included this target group in their influenza vaccination programmes.
 
Through various expert lectures and debates, the colloquium aims to:
  • explore the variety of influenza vaccination programmes for children in the EU
  • address possible hurdles for childhood vaccination
  • spark the scientific debate on concerted, well-balanced influenza preventing policies for children in Europe.
Registration
Participation in the colloquium is free of charge, but places are limited. Register now to secure your seat.
