The Center for One Health Illinois at the College of Veterinary Medicine in Urbana is planning a lecture series in the spring of 2013 to bring awareness to issues with human, animal, and environmental dimensions.

Four lectures are planned, two of which will be offered in Chicago as well as in Urbana. The two-hour events will consist of brief presentations from 4-5 panelists in the first hour, followed by questions and discussion with the audience.

Health Risk or Hype: Emerging Diseases You Should Care About will cover risks associated with tick-borne diseases, Hanta virus, West Nile virus, whooping cough, tularemia, plague, antimicrobial resistance, and inclue a presentation of science and health info and how it's portrayed in the media.
