September PVM Fall Conference Combines Learning and Fun for the Veterinary Team

August 6, 2014

The veterinary team is the focus of first-rate continuing education and special events planned as part of the 2014 Purdue Veterinary Medicine Fall Conference September 9-13. Features will include a new Bovine Track, and on September 11, a special plenary session, the Dr. Jack and Naomi Stockton / Class of ’71 Lecture, which will be given by Navy SEAL veteran and author Mike Ritland, who trains and supplies dogs for the SEAL teams and Department of Defense.  Other conference highlights will include continuing education (CE) sessions covering small animal, food animal, equine, professional development, shelter medicine, exotics, and topics of special interest for veterinary technicians.  Hands on labs will also be offered in necropsy, shelter medicine behavior and vet tech specialties on critical thinking and interpreting nutritional labels. Another popular component of the conference is the exhibit hall, which this year will be held in the Purdue Memorial Union ballrooms.  Conference attendees will be able to get up to 29 CE credits.

Special events will include a celebration for the 50th Anniversary Class – the Class of 1964 – and reunion activities for other anniversary classes; IAHF Golf Outing; Dr. Skip Jackson Dog Jog; Elanco Human-Animal Bond Lecture; the Awards Celebration where the Distinguished Alumni and teaching awards will be presented; and the Meet Me @ the Mixer reception for all conference attendees, which will include recognition of both Veterinary Technology and DVM reunion classes.  All conference sessions and special events will be held on the Purdue University campus in West Lafayette, Ind.
