Missed out on some of our recent SCAVMA lectures?! Here are updates on our first two of the Fall 2013 semester!
1) Dr. Howard Krum, the author of "An Animal Life" and an established aquatic veterinarian. Dr. Krum is a past head veterinarian at the New England Aquarium in Boston. Subsequently, Dr. Krum signed on to help launch both the Georgia Aquarium and the Georgia Sea Turtle Center. He has been featured on the PBS TV series Scientific American Frontiers with Alan Alda and his work with stranded sea turtles, large whales and dolphins has been recognized on the NBC Nightly News, various regional news stations and in dozens of newspaper outlets including the Boston Globe. Also, Howard's contributions to help create the world's largest aquarium were chonicled in the award-winning documentary, "Window to Wow/The Opening of the Georgia Aquarium" (produced by WXIA-TV Atlanta).

Dr. Hall discussed the AVMA's objectives in promoting the veterinary field, how they operate, and what they can do for our veterinary students.
