(New York, N.Y. – October 30, 2017) Animal Medical Center (AMC), the nation’s largest non-profit animal hospital, will present Global One Health Day, an international campaign to bring awareness to the collaborative effort of health science professionals in different fields to ensure the well-being of people, animals and the environment. The AMC’s Usdan Institute for Animal Health Education will host a full-day of lectures, how-to-sessions, and unique opportunities for pet owners and animal-lovers to go behind the scenes of the country’s largest non-profit animal hospital. The November 2nd event is free and open to the public. Registration is required.

AMC staff doctors and residents will provide a series of educational forums, including; a behind the scenes look inside the Emergency Room where 20,000 patient cases are treated every year by AMC’s board-certified Emergency and Critical Care specialists; important information about Lyme Disease and Flu – infectious diseases that affect people and pets; and the changing nutritional needs of aging pets. In addition, how-to sessions about pet massage and exercise, dental health and pet first aid will help people keep their pets in optimal health. For those not able to attend, AMC will live stream the how-to sessions on Facebook and will record all sessions to be uploaded to the Usdan Institute website after the event at http://www.amcny.org/usdan-institute-events

“Education has been at the core of AMC’s mission for over a century,” said Kathryn Coyne, Chief Executive Officer at AMC. “At Global One Health Day, AMC hopes to provide pet parents with important and timely information to help keep their pets in optimal health.”

“At AMC, One Health has a very special meaning as many of our board-certified veterinarians work closely with physicians from leading health institutions to help improve diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases shared by people and pets,” said Dr. Richard Goldstein, Chief Medical Officer at AMC.
