President's Corner

Dear Colleagues:

The Delaware Valley Academy of Veterinary Medicine’s 2021 fall seminar series is quickly coming to an end with our last presentation coming on November 10th. This will be a lecture on Urology given by Dr. Joe Bartges from the University of Georgia.

Our last seminar given by Dr. Audrey Cook was a great success with 174 members participating out of a total membership of 232. Dr. Cook’s lecture received an overall rating of 4.7 out of 5 with 98% of the members responding that they would like to have her back in the future.

The DVAVM board is looking forward to the spring 2022 seminars which we are still planning to offer both in person and with virtual access. The first lecture in the spring will be on cardiology and will be on March 9th. There is a typo in the program that was originally sent out which has the seminar on March 19th.

DVAVM board and I wish you a safe and happy holiday season. May all your patients be doing well; your balance sheets balance and your profit and loss sheets be in the black. Hope to see you all in person come March of 2022.

Regards,
Mark A. Cofone, VMD DACVS

DV Academy 2021 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 4 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.
