OSU IVSA will host the First Annual One-Health-One-World Service Symposium

March 14th, 2011

The Oregon State University chapter of the International Veterinary Students’ Association (IVSA) plans on hosting the first annual One-Health-One-World Service Symposium April 8 – 10, 2011.

The mission of the first annual IVSA Symposium is to provide education about and promote the value of international veterinary medicine and its parallels with global public health. IVSA would like to provide a venue for exchange of ideas between students and members of the professional global health community.

The weekend will consist of lectures, case studies and various opportunities for students and professionals to discuss and generate ideas for promotion of service work in the international setting. The symposium is directed towards students with an interest in global health sciences, with particular emphasis on, but not limited to, the role of the veterinarians.

In addition to presentations from speakers from all over the country, the symposium will also include a language dinner, an international food fest, a clinical case challenge and a quiz bowl. This event is open to the public. Some presentation topics are listed below:

Dr. Richard Bachman — The evolution of international service, grassroots efforts, and philosophies of service

Dr. Thomas W. Graham — CEO Vets Without Borders: Rebuilding veterinary infrastructure in post conflict nations

Dr. Luiz Bermudez — Education in the field setting and tales from an African Medical clinic

Dr. Christi Camphlor — “Compassion without Borders”: The inner workings of a non-profit, international medical program
