The second PVM Family Program Series presentation of the fall semester features Dr. Micha Simons, clinical assistant professor of small animal surgery in the Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences, who will display the tiny camera equipment used to perform minimally invasive surgery.  The talk entitled, “Let’s Take a Peek,” is scheduled for next Thursday, November 1, 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. in Lynn 1136.

The PVM Family Program Series is designed for families with young children who are interested in learning more about the veterinary profession. The programs are geared toward children in grades K-4, but older children are welcome to attend. The series takes place from October-December and March-April.

The presentation is free and open to the public, but registration is requested.  If you plan on attending, please email the Office of Engagement at pvmengaged@purdue.edu to sign-up.  All that is needed is your name, how many children are attending, and their ages. Children in attendance will receive a giveaway.
