Please post this "call for abstracts" for upcoming session on One Health at 2015 Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC). Thank you, Janet Whaley

Call for Abstracts for consideration in the One Health Session at the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) North America 36th Annual Meeting to be held November 1-5, 2015, in Salt Lake City, UT.  The session, "One Health": Opportunities for SETAC Leadership in Integrating Environmental, Human, and Animal Health, follows-up on the engaging One Health introduction at last year's SETAC Wildlife Toxicology Advisory Group meeting.  This session expands that discussion and emphasizes roles for environmental toxicologists, chemists, and risk assessors in fostering One Health.

"One Health" is a concept to encourage and expand interdisciplinary collaborations in research, clinical practice, policy, and communication related to health of people, other animals and the environment. It is increasingly common to see "One Health" included by name in inter-institutional research partnerships, conferences, communications, and organizational frameworks. One Health expertise is strong within SETAC, particularly amongst members of SETAC's Wildlife Toxicology, Human Health Risk Assessment, and Ecological Risk Assessment advisory groups.  This session will bring together like-minded professionals to share their views and expand collaborations among scientists interested in the connections of human health, animal health and the environment.

We encourage abstracts for consideration for inclusion in this session.   The session is listed under the track "Special Symposiums" and abstract submission<http://slc.setac.org/program/scientific-program/abstract-submission/> is open through May 27. Check out http://slc.setac.org<http://slc.setac.org/> for the latest meeting news.
