One Health Day: The Impact of DNA Testing on You, Your Pet, and Your World

On November 4th, 2019, the Animal Medical Center was joined by experts in the field of medical, veterinary, and environmental science as they discussed the ins-and-out of genetic testing and how this information is impacting our collective health.
