The Ohio State Global One Health Summer Institute, which has been hosted in-person in eastern Africa since 2012, was offered this year digitally due to COVID-19.
Also different this year, was the addition of two major series of webinars and trainings. One of the series focused on internal medicine and was organized by Robert Baiocchi, MD, PhD, professor of medicine at The Ohio State University and physician at the Wexner Medical Center. Twenty internal medicine lectures took place over 13 sessions.
The other series was the Equine Health Training Module jointly organized by Worldwide Veterinary Service and GOHi, which was presented by 13 equine health clinicians who hailed from the United Kingdom, Ethiopia, Canada and India.
This year, faculty, clinicians and other professionals from Ohio State and other institutions from various countries were involved in the webinars, modules, panel discussions and workshops.
Twelve courses, three antimicrobial resistance webinars and the additional internal medicine lectures and equine health modules were covered by the summer institute.
Two more internal medical webinars and one risk assessment course will run in September that will conclude the 2020 Digital Global One Health Summer Institute.
