iCOMOS is a global forum to (i) communicate the importance of science in solving pressing health issues at the interface of humans, animals, and the environment; (ii) facilitate interdisciplinary, international collaborations embracing health, science, and economics; and (iii) inform public policy development that is necessary for preserving human and animal health.
This second meeting of iCOMOS will focus on the impact of environmental air contamination and water quality on humans and animals at individual and population levels, with a particular emphasis on the health policy balance between personalized medicine and public health. Workshops will focus on health science workforce training for team science, an epilepsy case study, and one health policy in the context of global food and economic development. It will be of interest to human and animal health care professionals, economists, trainees, environmental scientists, ethicists, public health and chronic disease specialists, and policy experts in health, agriculture, food, and environmental affairs.
