There were many interesting oral and poster presentations from various professors and graduate students. The topics ranged from cancer research to the history of oral hygiene. This conference emphasized the idea of One Health, which is a topic that is definitely on the rise.

On Tuesday June 7th, 2017, I was fortunate to attend the 43rd annual meeting of the Canadian Association of Veterinary Pathologists.

Cancer and One Health

Posted July 27, 2017

Last week I had the pleasure of attending the 10th annual ICCI Cancer Research Symposium. This is where I first learned about Dr. William Eward, who is both a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and a Physician. Dr. Eward has a compelling new perspective on the One Health approach to medicine, specifically to orthopaedic oncology involving sarcoma cancer. He highlights the importance of applying research done with a single species to others, such as canine and human research in cancer.

I recently attended the Annual CCSAW Research Symposium and what a great event it was to participate in. The presentations covered a diverse array of topics that targeted some very important welfare concerns seen today. I found myself specifically taking interest in the topics geared towards production animals as this captures my background and is applicable to my interests.
