67th Annual Conference Brings Veterinarians to Fort Collins
If you were a sick dog or cat, Fort Collins was the place to be Jan. 7-9 as Colorado State University hosted the 67th Annual Veterinary Conference (and the 16th Annual Technicians Conference), bringing in veterinarians from across the state and around the country.
Veterinarians were able to take advantage of 75 hours of lectures and laboratories and could obtain up to 19 hours in continuing education credit. National and internationally recognized invited speakers covered a wide range of timely topics, and Dr. Temple Grandin, an Associate Professor of Animal Science at CSU, was the keynote speaker. Dr. Grandin is a world recognized expert on livestock facility design, livestock handling, and animal welfare. She has appeared on many television shows including 20/20, 48 Hours, CNN, Larry King Live, PrimeTime Live, and the Today Show. At the conference, her keynote address was titled, "How Animals Think and Feel."
Conference highlights included break-out sessions on equine medicine, food animal medicine, small animal medicine, small animal urinary disease, ophthalmology, small animal surgery, small animal cardiology, small animal critical care, and oncology. Leading pharmaceutical, biological and supporting industries exhibited their latest products in the exhibit hall and provided another educational venue.
Special events included a meeting of the Dean's External Advisory Council, where Dr. Lance Perryman brought the council up to date on College events and sought advice and opinions. Members of the Advisory Council are Drs. Ted Cohn, Bob Taylor, Terry Swanson, Nancy Love, Elizabeth Whitney, Delio Tamayo and Joni Freshman. The College also hosted a dinner reunion for the Class of 1996.
Thanks to all those who attended the conference this year, and we look forward to seeing you again in 2007.
