[May 31, 2018; Kennett Square, Pennsylvania] – On Tuesday, June 19, 2018, join renowned orthopedic surgeon Dr. Dean Richardson as he presents “Stories About Horse Fractures,” as part of the First Tuesday Lecture Series at Penn Vet’s New Bolton Center.
Dr. Richardson is the Charles W. Raker Professor of Equine Surgery and Chief of Large Animal Surgery at New Bolton Center, and is board-certified by the American College of Veterinary Surgeons.
