Presentation on the Veterinary Public Health degree

With the realization that nearly 60 percent of emerging diseases are likely to be zoonotic (moving from an animal population to humans), the Master's of Public Health in Veterinary Public Health was developed to prepare public health professionals to better protect the communities they serve. This partnership between the colleges of Veterinary Medicine and Public Health offers students specialized instruction in the epidemiology of zoonotic diseases, as well as training in food safety, biosecurity, and environmental health. Join Veterinary Public Health Program Director Dr. Armando Hoet on Wednesday, May 12 at 5 p.m. in room 180 Sisson Hall, 1920 Coffey Rd. as he discusses degree options and benefits of obtaining the Master's of Public Health in Veterinary Public Health.
