Tuesday February 1, 6:30-7:30 PM
[January 5, 2011; Kennett Square, PA] –On Tuesday, February 1st, New Bolton Center will present Beyond EPM: Neurologic Disease in the Horse. The lecture is part of the First Tuesdays Lecture Series at the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine at New Bolton Center. The series offers the public open lectures on equine topics, at no charge, the first Tuesday of each month.
The February 1st lecture will be presented by Maeva May DVM, a lecturer and Internal Medicine clinician at New Bolton Center. This presentation will cover the basics of recognizing and distinguishing neurologic disease from other causes of gait abnormalities, such as musculoskeletal disease. It will focus on explaining diagnostics that are performed both in the field and in referral practices and will help the owner understand when a horse can continue to be treated on the farm and when it should be referred to a tertiary care facility such as New Bolton Center.
The First Tuesday lecture series offers New Bolton Center an opportunity to share current information on topics of interest and relevance to horse owners and caregivers throughout the region. The series of one hour lectures covers a wide range of veterinary subjects, each presented by a New Bolton Center clinician with expertise in the subject. Presentations planned for early 2011 include high-speed treadmill testing of the equine patient, wound care and colic. “We are keen to offer the local equine community the topics that interest them,” says Rose Nolen-Walston DVM, organizer of the series. “The steady rise in attendance has let us know that we are doing just that. If there is a topic that you think should be included in our schedule, please let us know.” Suggestions for future First Tuesday lecture topics can be sent to email@example.com.
