For nearly 60 years, the Tuskegee University College of Veterinary Medicine has hosted its annual Veterinary Medical Symposium and this year a Purdue Veterinary Medicine clinician served as a featured speaker. Dr. Anna McManamey, clinical assistant professor of cardiology, gave the Lunch and Learn presentation Friday, March 24, on the topic, “Diagnostic and Treatment Strategies for Asymptomatic Heart Disease.” The talk was sponsored by Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health. Board certified in cardiology by the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine, Dr. McManamey is a 2016 DVM graduate of the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine and completed her residency at North Carolina State University. She joined the Purdue faculty in 2021. 

The 57th Annual Tuskegee Veterinary Medical Symposium, which was held March 22-25, focused on the theme “Cultivating a Sustainable Future for the Veterinary Profession.” This year marked the first time since the pandemic that the event was held in person. This conference brings together veterinarians and Tuskegee alumni from across the country to discuss important issues related to animal health and veterinary medicine. The event also honored Tuskegee University College of Veterinary Medicine reunion classes, including PVM Dean Willie Reed’s class, the Class of 1978, which celebrated its 45th reunion.

The Tuskegee University College of Veterinary Medicine is the only veterinary medical professional program located on the campus of a historically black college or university (HBCU) in the United States.  The first class graduated in 1945. Today, the total number of Tuskegee veterinary medical graduates is nearly 3,000.
