Tuskegee Veterinary Symposium to Focus on World Health & Medicine
Using "One World, One Health, One Medicine" as its theme, the 42nd Annual Veterinary Medical Symposium is scheduled for March 21-24, at the University's Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center and School of Veterinary Medicine Complex.
The conference will touch scientific topics ranging from small and large animal medicine and surgery to veterinary public health and international veterinary medicine. Two wet laboratories are also being offered for participants, one in liver biopsy techniques and one in bandaging and suturing techniques. Limited seating is available for the wet labs, which will be repeated throughout the Symposium.
"As this year's Symposium theme reflects, we realize the importance of veterinary medicine from a global perspective," says Dr. Tsegaye Habtemariam, dean of the College of Veterinary Medicine, Nursing and Allied Health. "Therefore, we want to be sure that both the veterinary medical interests as well human-health related interests are addressed. There truly should be something for everyone in attendance."
