NEW YORK (AP) — What do Siberian tigers and post-menopausal women have in common?
And what about penguins and people?
Physicians and veterinarians will team up Saturday to explore those questions and others on treating diseases humans and animals share.
The Manhattan conference is called Zoobiquity. It will bring together about 30 medical experts.
They include the chief medical officer at New York's Animal Medical Center, Dr. Richard Goldstein.
The conference involves top medical hubs like UCLA, New York's Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and The Wildlife Conservation Society at the Bronx Zoo.
After discussing cases, participants from around the world will examine some Bronx animals.
