The series offers free lectures to the public on equine topics the first Tuesday of each month. The lectures take place in New Bolton Center’s Alumni Hall. Due to limited seating, reservations are recommended and can be made by contacting Barbara Belt at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dr. Davidson is an Associate Professor of Sports Medicine, and Dr. Arbittier is a Staff Veterinarian in the Section of Equine Field Service. They will offer a joint lecture in equine sports medicine, including lameness evaluations.
