Supervet Keynote Speaker at Joint PHT-UoP Health and Technology Conference

We are excited to host Professor Noel Fitzpatrick aka ‘The Supervet’ at this year’s joint Health and Technology conference, brought to you by Portsmouth Hospitals Trust and The University of Portsmouth.

The Supervet’, first aired on Channel 4 in 2014, demonstrating Professor Fitzpatrick’s application of innovative and world-leading techniques to improve the lives of our pets. He established Fitzpatrick Referrals in 2005 and supported the establishment of the Veterinary School of Medicine at The University of Surrey in 2015.

Founder of the Humanimal Trust and The One Medicine Approach

In 2015, Professor Noel Fitzpatrick founded the Humanimal Trust, which strives to lay the foundations for a “new era of compassionate medicine and a fairer society.” through the combination of expertise in animal and human medicine.

He is pioneering the ‘One Medicine’ approach which strives to provide a sustainable solution for the treatment of humans and animals alike. Noel’s concept of the one medicine approach focuses on the similarities, rather than differences, between animals and humans.

The Humanimal Trust is moving the One Medicine approach forward this year through the establishment of an online community to promote cross-collaboration between human and animal experts in the fields of medicine, bio-engineering and research through the ‘Humanimal Hub’.

Come and hear  what Professor Noel Fitzpatrick has to say

13 June, 4.00pm, Eldon Building West 1.11

At the conference, Professor Fitzpatrick will deliver a talk on his personal perspectives as a veterinary surgeon of ‘One Medicine’ as an opportunity to improve the health of both animals and humans. He believes that by not sharing treatments across species an opportunity to find treatment solutions is missed as animals and humans share a large number of medical conditions and diseases.

Please join us on Wednesday 13 June at 4.00pm, in Eldon Building, Lecture Theatre W1.11 at the joint PHT-UoP Health and Technology conference. There is no need to book, however – please be aware that tickets have now sold out for the rest of the conference. Further information about the conference can be found in our online programme.
