The public is invited to join Purdue Veterinary Conference attendees for the 2016 Elanco Human-Animal Bond Lecture Tuesday evening, September 27. Dr. Candace Croney, director of the Purdue University Center for Animal Welfare Science (CAWS) and associate professor of animal behavior and well-being in PVM’s Department of Comparative Pathobiology, will speak on the topic, “Friends, Family, or Food? Factors Shaping Perceptions of Animals and Their Welfare Implications.” Dr. Croney will discuss societal factors influencing relationships with and perceived obligations to livestock and companion animals in developed western nations. Factors such as demographics, science, language, and culture will be explored in the context of their implications for animal welfare.

The Elanco Human–Animal Bond Lecture is an annual event and has alternated between the NAVC Conference, the Western Veterinary Conference and the Purdue Veterinary Conference. The 2016 Elanco Human-Animal Bond Lecture is open to the public and will kick-off the 2016 Purdue Veterinary Conference on Tuesday, September 27, at 5:30 p.m. in Eliza Fowler Hall in the Stewart Center at Purdue University. A light reception will be held prior to Dr. Croney’s lecture at 5:00 p.m. in the Stewart Center’s Robert L. Ringel Gallery. 

One continuing education (CE) credit will be offered for this lecture.
