Inaugural One Health Lecture and Reception Honors Gordon and Harriet Coppoc

August 6, 2014

A new Purdue Veterinary Medicine tradition will be established in November with the first annual Coppoc One Health Lecture to be presented by Dr. Elaine Ostrander, a researcher from the National Human Genome Research Institute.  The program in Lynn Hall November 13 will begin with a reception at 6:00 p.m.  The lecture will follow at 7:00, when Dr. Ostrander will speak about the contributions of research toward human and animal health and well-being. Dr. Ostrander’s research focuses on genetic mapping as it relates to cancer in humans and their canine companions. 

The program is being held in honor of Dr. Gordon Coppoc, Purdue Veterinary Medicine professor of veterinary pharmacology, and his wife, Harriet.  A long-time faculty member and former head of the Department of Basic Medical Sciences, Dr. Coppoc now serves as Director of the Indiana University School of Medicine-Lafayette and Associate Dean of the Indiana University School of Medicine.

Everyone who has an interest in human and animal health is invited to attend the reception and lecture that is free and open to the public. One continuing education (CE) credit will be offered for this lecture.
