Where has the time gone? It’s hard to believe it’s already June and my youngest son graduates middle school this month. He’s on to high school next fall and it seems so hard to fathom. Speaking of graduations, those hard working Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine (www.rossU.edu) veterinary students celebrated their own graduation from veterinary school on June 4th at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
I’ve been to the Garden for many events, but not a graduation. It was especially meaningful to hear Dr. Kurt Schrader, the only veterinarian now serving in the US House of Representatives deliver his commencement speech. I enjoyed his remarks very much, and you can read them verbatim at Congressman Schrader Addresses Ross Grads. For a more indepth discussion of the issues, read this video interview on dvm360 by DVM magazine
The Animal Health Corridor’s Investment Forum deadline is looming. June 25th is the final date for applications. I attended last year. It was a great event for networking and the presentations were outstanding. To learn more, visit www.kcanimalhealthforum.com.
In celebration of summer, we’ve launched a new Summer Fun with Your Pet Contest.
It’s June, and it’s busy!
