The following week, Dr. Jeff Bender, professor in the School of Public Health and an adjunct professor in the College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Minnesota, will give the 5th Annual Coppoc One Health Lecture on the topic, “Antimicrobial Stewardship and One Health.” The talk is free and open to the public, and begins at 3:30 p.m., Thursday, November 1, in Lynn 1136.
Then, the College of Veterinary Medicine will host the inaugural David Van Sickle Musculoskeletal Days November 9-10. The conference will feature keynote speaker Dr. Wayne McIlwraith, a world-renowned equine orthopedic surgeon and regenerative medicine and osteoarthritis researcher from Colorado State University (CSU). Dr. McIlwraith completed a residency in large animal surgery at the Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine and then earned his PhD at Purdue under the guidance of Dr. David Van Sickle, a long-time Purdue Veterinary Medicine professor of veterinary anatomy, in whose memory the conference is named.
The deadline for early bird registration for the David Van Sickle Musculoskeletal Days has been extended, and students may register for free. The first day of the conference will take the form of a traditional research day for people in academia, research, and industry. The second day (Saturday, November 10) will feature a program that is open to the public with a focus on orthopedic health and how people, horses, and pets with osteoarthritis can have a good quality of life.
