The purpose of the inaugural Symposium in 2011 was for animal health and human health experts to share science‐based information so an honest dialogue could ensue. Today, the dialogue is just as important. The Symposium will provide opportunities for attendees to participate in panel discussions, interact with speakers, collaborate in small group sessions and connect with leaders from animal, human, and environmental health organizations. Additionally, the program has been submitted (but is not yet approved) for 9.5 hours of continuing education credit in jurisdictions which recognize RACE approval.
