As we bid farewell to summer, and a strange summer weather-wise at that, I look forward to the upcoming topics: Ophthalmology, Zoonoses, and Dermatology finish out the 2018 year and they should be very informative. I am looking forward to the Zoonoses lecture personally as for my MPH I am currently taking both a Public Health Nutrition course and Foodborne Illnesses course. We all know how much of a role zoonotic diseases play in human health and nutrition concerns.
I wanted to take this time to send my regards and sympathies at the loss of our Merial / BI representative Robert "Bob" Spinosi, who passed away recently. He was my rep when I worked regularly at Old Marple Animal Hospital and I had gotten to know him a bit over the past 12 years. He will be sorely missed as a fixture out our meetings. Further information can be found here if you are interested.
Donít forget about the Sponsor Exhibitions: $200 Amazon Gift Card Raffles! And remember to visit the sponsors for more than just the raffle as their presence helps to reduce membership fees and they can provide new and helpful information to us all.
Please Enjoy: the 2018-9 season!
Do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.
