National Meeting General Information

The AALAS National Meeting Program Committee and AALAS President Morag Mackay invite you to attend the 2019 National Meeting in Denver, CO. 

The meeting will be held at the Colorado Convention Center, 700 14th St. Denver, CO., U.S. from October 13-17, 2019.

The Spotlight Forum is, "One Health–Connections Between Animal, Human, and Environmental Health.

The One Health concept recognizes that the health of people is connected to the health of animals and the environment. It’s a collaborative, multi-sectorial, and trans-disciplinary approach to bring together veterinarians, physicians, ecologists, and many others to learn from each other and monitor and control public health threats and to learn how disease spreads among people, animals, and the environment.

Please join us in exploring and learning from the One Health initiative and how it relates to our work in laboratory animal science. As our 2019 spotlight topic, submissions in this category can include the diverse topics such as the human-animal bond; disease surveillance, prevention, and response; research (both basic and translational); comparative medicine (the commonality of diseases among people and animals, such as cancer, obesity, and diabetes); disaster preparedness and response; communications and outreach; and much more.
