The workshop will take place on Wednesday, April 30 from 8:00am to 5:00pm. We will commence with a plenary session addressing what One Health is and the actors who make the One Health system work. Following the morning plenary session we will hit the ground for an on-site panel discussion at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds to address animal human interactions in public settings. We will end the afternoon in an interactive learning room where we will delve into the realities of how One Health works in the ‘real word’ and how we can build on this with synthesis of insights and improving One Health partnerships. Workshop participants will have the opportunity to carry these insights forward in a published synthesis document that can be used to inform stakeholders who bring One Health to the realities of disease.
