The South Dakota One Health: Managing Pain in People and Animals seminar will be held March 13 at 9 AM CDT at the USD Health Science Center (Room #106, 1400 W. 22nd St., Sioux Falls, SD 57105).

Some Questions to be explored
- How is pain assessed in animals and people?
- What anesthetics and analgesics do veterinarians use when performing surgery on companion animals?
