Equine Health and Welfare Lecture Series

Trustees of the University of Pennsylvania - New Bolton Center

Award Date: October 2, 2017
Awarded: $25,000

Penn Vet’s New Bolton Center has a deep commitment to Equine Health and Welfare, and recently received a gift which we have designated towards a Professorship in Equine Health and Welfare. This Professor will be an expert in this area, and will instruct future equine veterinarians and guide the equine community as a whole in addressing some of the horrific and complex welfare issues facing horses in our geographical location and beyond. To begin to raise awareness of some of these issues, educate the Penn Vet community about the depth and breadth of the subject of welfare, and have an opportunity to meet and learn more about the candidates and their areas of expertise, they will be holding a 7-part lecture series. Each candidate, as well as the chairs of the Professorship Search Committee will give a lecture describing their work, their philosophies, areas of research and clinical work, as well as discuss their ideas on program implementation should they be appointed as Professor.
