Get (It) Together is the first national student event in the field of One Health, which was held on Friday, June 10th. Instant success. More than 100 students from all over the Netherlands visited the event.

The purpose of the event is to allow students from different studies to get to know each other and to raise awareness of One Health. The belief of the committee is that if this awareness and cooperation is achieved at student level a firm foundation for the future is laid along. Judging by the turnout, our fellow students agree with that.
