2016 Stockton Lecture to Address Mentorship in the Veterinary Field

Attendees of the 2016 Purdue Veterinary Conference are invited to this year’s Dr. Jack and Naomi Stockton Lecture presented by Debbie White, DVM (PU DVM ’94). Dr. White will present on the topic, “Mentorship: Take the Gamble” on Thursday, September 29, at 4:30 p.m. in Loeb Playhouse. Realizing that mentorship is a hot topic within the veterinary profession, she will discuss the issues of newly graduated veterinarians and technicians seeking employment and education opportunities that include a professional and personal guidance component, while employers potentially face the challenge of balancing the duties of practitioner, manager, owner, and mentor. Dr. White addresses the question, “Does mentorship pay off for the mentor?”

Dr. White is a small animal exotics animal practitioner in Las Vegas, Nev. where she owns and manages two veterinary hospitals with her husband, Dr. Kurt Mychajlonka (PU DVM ’93). She is also a partner in five other veterinary practices, and two referral/emergency practices in the Las Vegas area. Dr. White is currently on the board of directors for the Western Veterinary Conference in Las Vegas. She is a former appointee on the Clark County Animal Advisory Committee, and is a Certified Veterinary Reporter with the American Society of Veterinary Journalists where she serves on their credentialing board. She has written four E-books on Yorkshire Terriers, Mini Schnauzers, Shih Tzus and Pugs. Dr. White is also a regular veterinary contributor on local news and national radio programming. She is known as "Dr. Debbie" on her weekly nationally broadcast radio program, Animal Radio, where she fields questions from pet lovers across the country.
