President's Corner

The Delaware Valley Academy of Veterinary Medicine has officially kicked off its 2021-2022 seminar season with a very well attended presentation on Immune Mediated Diseases by Dr. Andrew Mackin. The first seminar had 177 participants, with 96% of those who listened agreeing that the information presented was practical and that same number hoped that we could have Dr. Mackin back for a future presentation.

The next seminar will be given by Dr. Audrey Cook and her subject will be Small Animal Endocrinology. Dr. Cook is an Associate Professor in Small Animal Clinical Sciences at Texas A&M, she has numerous publications on this and other small animal internal medicine related topics. She has served as chair of the Small Animal Medicine Program for NAVC and is a highly sought-after speaker, so we are very happy to be able to have her presenting at the DVAVM.

I hope that you are all doing well and that you will be able to attend this next seminar. Regards

Regards,
Mark A. Cofone, VMD DACVS

DV Academy 2020 Fall Seminars will be Webinars Only!
The DV Academy Board, after lengthy discussion, has unanimously decided that the first three seminars of our 2021-2022 will be webinars only on September 22, 2021, October 13, 2021, and November 10, 2021. We hope to be able to meet in person for our four Spring seminars in 2022. The board feels that for the safety of its membership, continuity in fees and delivery systems, webinars make the most sense until the virus contagion is more controlled either by treatments and/or vaccine.

The board will continue to evaluate the virus situation as we look forward to the time when we will once again be able to meet as a large group. In January 2022, the board will meet to discuss and confirm our plans to meet in person at the LuLu Center, or, to continue to meet by webinar. This decision will be made after considering the situation from all perspectives. Thank you for your understanding.
