PENAPH Conference: Participatory Approaches to One Health – Abstract Deadline Extended through July 7

Several members have requested an extension of the Abstract Deadline. We are getting a good response with about 50 abstracts received already and usually that number doubles in the final hours before the deadline. We also have 6 proposals for conference courses.


The abstract template still indicates that the deadline is July 1, but this announcement takes priority.
