A crowd favorite at the 2017 PVM Open House, the PVTSA dunk tank is sure to be a hit again at this year’s event.

The Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine’s annual Open House is just a week away.  The event scheduled for 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., next Saturday, April 14, serves as a way to educate the public on the different aspects of veterinary medicine. Held annually in conjunction with Purdue Spring Fest, this year’s theme focuses on “One Health, One Goal. Because our Health Depends on Theirs.” With fun events for the whole family, visitors will learn all about the different areas of veterinary medicine and how the health of animals, people, and the environment are all connected.

Visit the “mini zoo” inside with the Columbian Park Zoo.

“Each year has proven better than the last,” Open House Co-chair Brook Shell said. “We have some exciting, new demonstrations. We have encouraged student clubs to work together to provide the public with more interactive exhibits, and our student leaders have far exceeded expectations. Specifically, our goal this year is to showcase the ‘One Health’ theme in a big way; a way that gets the public excited about the veterinary profession’s role in the big picture of global healthcare.”
