Penn Vet Surgeon Addresses Colleagues at Pre-Flyer’s Game Event
Monday, April 04, 2011
[April 4, 2011, 2011; Kennett Square, PA] – The sports are dissimilar, the players quite different, but equine athletes and their human counterparts have much in common. On Tuesday, March 29, David Levine, DVM, DACVS made a presentation to approximately two dozen colleagues at a pre-game get together at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, PA. Before the puck dropped, equine veterinarians from Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware and New Jersey enjoyed the opportunity to learn more about the diagnosis and treatment of osteoarthritis. “This talk was aimed specifically at equine patients,” says Dr. Levine, “but there are many similarities between what goes on in the joints of a horse and the joints of a human.” Dr. Levine’s invitation to speak, along with sponsorship for the event, was courtesy of Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals and Mid-West Veterinary Supply.
Dr. Levine is an equine surgeon at New Bolton Center, the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine’s large animal campus, located in Kennett Square, PA.
Penn's School of Veterinary Medicine is one of the world's premier veterinary schools. Founded in 1884, the School was built on the concept of Many Species, One Medicine. The birthplace of veterinary specialties, the School serves a distinctly diverse array of animal patients, from pets to horses to farm animals at our two campuses. In Philadelphia, on Penn's campus, are the Matthew J. Ryan Veterinary Hospital for companion animals, as well as classrooms, laboratories and the School's administrative offices. The large-animal facility, New Bolton Center, in Kennett Square, Pa., encompasses hospital facilities for the care of horses and food animals as well as diagnostic laboratories serving the agriculture industry.
