AABP Elects PVM Alumna Carie Telgen as Vice President
Congratulations to Dr. Carie Telgen (PU DVM 2009), of Greenwich, N.Y., who recently was elected as vice president of the American Association of Bovine Practitioners (AABP) for the 2018-2019 term. She will take office September 15, at the close of the annual business meeting during the 2018 AABP Annual Conference in Phoenix, Ariz. In her new position, Dr. Telgen will be the overall preconference seminar coordinator at the 2019 AABP Annual Conference in St. Louis, Mo., and chair of the Program Committee for the 2020 AABP Annual Conference in Louisville, Ky.
Originally from Shoreham, Vt., Dr. Telgen completed her undergraduate studies at Cornell University, where she received her Bachelor of Science degree in animal science before coming to Purdue and earning her DVM degree in 2009. She now is co-owner of Battenkill Veterinary Bovine P.C., in Greenwich, about 40 miles northeast of Albany, N.Y., where she works as a cattle veterinarian. She also has served as a volunteer veterinarian at the Dairy Cow Birthing Center at the New York State Fair.
Because Dr. Telgen is the current AABP District 1 director, a special election for a new district director will be available for AABP District 1 members in the near future.
