Cornell Hospital for Animals: Managing Joint Injury and Osteoarthritis in Equine Practice The Equine and Nemo Farm Animal Hospital at Cornell University is committed to helping veterinarians and technicians in our region meet their continuing education needs. Evening seminars will be scheduled twice per year specifically for our referring veterinarians and their technicians. This program meets the New York State Education Department requirements for 1.5 CE credits. This lecture will focus on joint injury and disease and how they are major causes of morbidity in equine athletes and companions alike. For equine practitioners, diagnosing, treating and managing these patients can be frustrating. This seminar will provide a brief overview of clinically relevant joint biology, and a discussion of common treatment strategies. The talk will focus on new insights that may change the way we manage patients with acute and chronic joint disease. Time will be available for question and/or case discussions. Speaker: Michelle L. Delco, DVM, PhD, DACVS Lecture

Cornell Hospital for Animals: Minimally Invasive Surgery The Cornell University Hospital for Animals is committed to helping veterinarians and technicians in the region meet their continuing education needs. The evening CE events target the veterinary team with both veterinarians and licensed veterinary technicians invited. This program meets NY State requirements for CE credit with one credit per 50 minute talk. We hope the lectures provide you valuable continuing education as well as networking opportunities for local practitioners, technicians, and Cornell faculty and staff. This lecture reviews current practice and the evidence base around minimally invasive surgery (laparoscopic and thoracoscopic), together with the challenges faced in improving access to this modality. The advantages and disadvantages of minimally invasive modalities will be discussed. Speaker: Galina Hayes, BVSc, PhD, DACVECC, DACVS Lecture

8th Annual Veterinary Public Health Symposium Every year, the Veterinary Public Health Association, a student organization within the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine, hosts a Veterinary Public Health Symposium. This year, the format will be short talks, followed by interactive panel discussions on topics in public health such as planetary health, herd health (from the perspective of wildlife conservation, food animal production, and shelter medicine), and mental health. Dr. W. Ron DeHaven, who recently retired as CEO of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), will deliver the keynote address. Our ultimate goal is to hold an interdisciplinary symposium that sparks conversation and collaboration and expands people’s perception of what veterinary medicine can be. Veterinary students, undergraduates, graduate and professional students, and professionals should all find the symposium to be engaging intellectual fare. Early Registration (through September 1): $35 Symposium
