“Public Health Emergency Preparedness & Response: Epidemiology’s Role in Addressing One Health Emergencies”

Saskatchewan Epidemiology Association (SEA) is looking forward to re-connecting for the 21st annual symposium on October 20th, 2022! We are excited to come together to celebrate our accomplishments over these challenging years. As we transition into a new world, we reflect on lessons learned about public health emergency response and improvements for the future. Some of the sub-themes that will be explored include: COVID-19, future pandemics, the effects of climate change on population health, mental health/wellness, Indigenous health, and the role of One Health. Members will again meet virtually this year. Join us for the 21st annual SEA Symposium for the opportunity to connect, learn and grow! Tickets are $50 per person, free for students.
