Each year, Purdue for Life hosts an annual warm-weather gathering for Boilermakers in Naples, Florida, where Purdue alumni and friends celebrate their Purdue ties and find out the latest developments through special presentations and updates from university and college leaders.  Held February 7-11, the program included President’s Council “Back to Class” sessions that enabled participants to attend talks by Purdue faculty covering a range of topics. This year, one of the sessions was led jointly by Dr. Kenitra Hendrix, director of the Animal Disease Diagnostic Laboratory and clinical associate professor of veterinary diagnostic microbiology, and Dr. Sanjeev Narayanan, head of the Department of Comparative Pathobiology and professor of diagnostic medicine and pathobiology, who both addressed the topic, “Antimicrobial Resistance: The Greatest One-Health Challenge.” Additionally, alumni of the Colleges of Veterinary Medicine and Agriculture were able to hear updates from Deans Willie Reed and Bernie Engel, respectively.  And since the annual weekend coincided with the Purdue vs. IU Men’s Basketball game in Mackey Arena, another key event on the agenda was a game-watch gathering where fans were able to witness the Boilermakers’ resounding 79-59 defeat of the Hoosiers on the hardwood.
