In this session, we will focus on food and water safety and security, and issues at the human/animal/environmental interface in the North.  This includes, but is not limited to, environmental and ecological determinants of health,  emerging disease, sustainable wildlife populations, food security, and contaminants and pathogens that circulate among people, animals, and the environment.  As One Health is by nature highly collaborative and requires diverse skill sets and perspectives, we anticipate participants from a broad range of disciplines, such as wildlife biology, veterinary medicine, human health, toxicology, and environmental sciences, as well as transdisciplinary participants including policy makers and community members.  Presenters will be encouraged to translate their science for this broader audience.
