PVM Alumnus Shares Zoo Career at Dean's Club Luncheon
“From Purdue to a Zoo” was the theme for the 2013 Purdue Veterinary Medicine Dean's Club Luncheon which featured a member of the College’s 25th Reunion Class, Dr. Curtis Eng, as the guest speaker. Dr. Eng serves as Chief Veterinarian and Manager of the California Condor Program at the Los Angeles Zoo. Dr. Eng told the Dean’s Club members how his PVM training prepared him to tackle the challenges he faces as a veterinarian caring for some of the world’s most exotic species. He also described the success of the California Condor Program in preserving the rare birds from extinction. The Dean’s Club Luncheon was held in the Purdue Memorial Union North Ballroom. The Dean’s Club is for PVM alumni and friends who contribute $500 or more to the College of Veterinary Medicine during the calendar year.
