One Health Day 2019 Student event winner - University of California, Davis

Last year in 2019 the fourth annual global One Health Day, officially celebrated on 3 November 2019, generated over 130 events around the world. Each year students are especially encouraged to envision and implement student-led One Health Day events and, if desired, to enter them into an annual student events competition for cash prizes. Competing student teams must meet a set of qualifying criteria and submit a post-event summary. 

A number of excellent student events were submitted in 2019 but only one met all submission criteria. The winning team of the 2019 One Health Day Student Events Competition is from the University of California, Davis for their One Health Symposium: Interfaces - One Health at Borders and Margins. This daylong event explored issues impacting human, animal and ecosystem health at urban/rural interfaces and political borders. Having received a $2,000 cash award which will be utilized to expand next year’s Student One Health led symposium into a two-day event, the winning 2019 team will be recognized and celebrated on November 3, 2020 on the last day of the Virtual 6th World One Health Congress
