- Centers for Disease Control and Prevention - Zoonoses & One Health Updates Call: One-hour monthly webinars (1st Wednesday of the month, 2–3pm ET) that provide timely education on zoonotic and infectious diseases, One Health, and related health threats at the animal-human-ecosystem interface. Subject matter experts from multiple sectors present critical zoonoses prevention, detection, and response topics. This unique webinar allows participants to share information and gain knowledge on hot topics related to zoonoses and One Health; build partnerships across human, animal, environmental health and other sectors; create networks; and learn about emerging and important issues in One Health. Continuing education is available for most calls, and they are open to anyone interested.
