“Using Epidemiology to Connect us to Community in a One Health Landscape”

The Saskatchewan Epidemiology Association (SEA) is excited to announce that the 22nd Annual Symposium will take place on October 18th followed by an in-person workshop October 19th, 2023, in Saskatoon, SK. For the first time since 2019 we are eager to connect with our community, colleagues, and students face to face. With this sentiment in mind, this year’s symposium seeks to explore the important role epidemiology plays in community and population health from both the human and animal perspectives. How do we apply One Health strategies and promote collaborative action as we seek to find solutions to the health issues that face us?
