VMX, the North American Veterinary Community’s (NAVC) Veterinary Meeting and Expo, starts today in Orlando Florida and Purdue Veterinary Medicine is coordinating two events at the conference, which runs through Wednesday.  As the yearly conference provides an opportunity to bring professionals together, there will be a chance for PVM friends and alumni to gather at the PVM Alumni and Friends Reception, which will be held Sunday, January 20, from 7:00 -9:00 p.m., at the Hyatt Regency Orlando, Celebration 5.

Additionally, Purdue Veterinary Medicine and Elanco Animal Health are hosting the Elanco Human-Animal Bond Lecture at a luncheon on Sunday.  Dr. Evan MacLean, assistant professor in the School of Anthropology at the University of Arizona and director of the Arizona Canine Cognition Center will speak on the topic “Oxytocin, Vasopressin, and Social Behavior in Dogs.”  The lecture will cover research done in the last decade investigating how these hormones play a role in dog behavior and dog interaction with humans.  The luncheon is scheduled from 12:00 – 1:30 p.m., in the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC) South. Attendees must be registered for the VMX conference in order to attend. Click here for more information.
