The Zoobiquity Boston Conference was presented by Tufts Clinical Translational Science Institute, Tufts University School of Medicine and the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine. The conference is designed to bring together leading clinicians and scientists in both human and veterinary medicine to discuss the same diseases in a wide spectrum of animal species, including people.
The intention of this cross-disciplinary conference is to create conversations and relationships between human and veterinary colleagues confronted with similar clinical challenges. By crossing disciplines in this manner, we can significantly expand the perspective of clinicians, scientists and patients about these shared disorders and broader health concerns.
