At the Indiana Veterinary Medical Association’s (IVMA) annual Crossroads Veterinary Conference, visitors to the exhibit hall had the opportunity to connect with Purdue Veterinary Medicine via a booth showcasing the breadth of services provided by the college. The conference was held Thursday through Saturday, February 2-4, at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Noblesville Conference Center.

PVM Director of Alumni Relations and Special Events Susan Xioufaridou said the event was well-attended and provided a great opportunity to engage with the college’s alumni and friends. “The overwhelming enthusiasm our friends and alumni have for the college was amazing! Visitors were truly interested in learning more about our services and ways to stay connected to the college,” Susan said.

Guests were able to learn about new tests available from the Animal Disease Diagnostic Laboratory (ADDL); sense the excitement surrounding the new David and Bonnie Brunner Purdue Veterinary Medical Hospital Complex, which was dedicated in the spring of 2022; and discover how members of the Purdue Veterinary Alumni Association are giving back to the college in support of student traditions and experiences and continuing education programs available through the Office for Lifelong Learning.

“IVMA Crossroads Veterinary Conference attendees were glad to visit with many members of our faculty and staff who were present,” said Kelly Dold, marketing and communications manager for the Purdue University Veterinary Hospital and ADDL, who spearheaded arrangements for the booth, including planning activities and gathering materials to have on-hand. “It also was great to have PVM Dean Willie Reed and Dr. Craig Bowen, ADDL assistant director, with us to greet visitors and field questions.”
