World-renowned experts are set to gather in London this Summer to discuss challenges and opportunities to support patients with tick-borne diseases.
The free event, organised by Vis-a-Vis Symposiums, will take place on 6 July at Imperial College London School of Medicine. In a letter to Vet Times, Vis-a-Vis patron Hany Elsheikha said:
‘Vets are easy targets for flea and tick-borne infections. Careers can be - and have been - lost in some instances. Recognition and treatment need to be dealt with promptly and adequately, Therefore, being armed with sufficient, reliable and up-to-date knowledge is crucial.
‘The meeting will bring together speakers, physicians and vets from the UK and the US, who are willing to cooperate under the philosophy of One Health.’
‘They will exchange ideas and, importantly, first hand-experiences with regards to advances in clinical diagnosis and management of these insidious infections, to better serve the needs of patients with tick-borne illnesses.’
The event is open to vets, medics and researchers. Anyone interested in attending the symposium should contact email@example.com.
