Hello All, It was a thrill to meet with everyone last week in Ames. I love seeing the transition from veterinary student to career veterinarian; I’ve had the privilege to watch this cycle for almost 25 years now. I also love seeing referring veterinarians face-to-face between sessions or at receptions. Reading your biopsies is fun, but talking about them in person is even better. The Commons at the CVM provided a great area for a reception. I am thankful for all the behind the scenes work that the IVMA Executive Office and the ISU-CVM Communications Office did to set up the reception at the CVM Commons. The New Graduate reception was also fun; I appreciate the work that the ELL’s (Drs. Tara Miller and Amie Roberts) did to set up this event. Thank you to the students who lead tours, and to the LVMC Oncology service, who provided a detailed view into the new Stereotactic Radiation Therapy facility. More...
