Horse-Human Relationship Symposium at Tufts

The Elizabeth Atwood Lawrence Symposium: Hoofbeats and Society: the Horse-Human Relationship is scheduled for May 15-16 at the Tufts University Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine in North Grafton, Mass.

The symposium is a tribute to Lawrence and focuses on an area of special interest to her and the horse-human relationship. Speakers and group discussion will address how horses mirror our views on nature and the implications for animal welfare. Other topics include how to optimize the horse-human relationship, promote responsible horse ownership, and encourage effective policies for horse rescue, adoption, and euthanasia.

The registration fee for veterinarians is $150 for both days or $100 for one day. The registration fee for lay people is $40 for both days or $20 for one day. Registration includes lectures and course notes on a CD. (Printed notes are available for an additional charge of $10.) Dinners are available for $35 per day.

The symposium, which will be held in the Agnes Varis Campus Center, will begin at 1:30 p.m. May 15 and 8:30 a.m. May 16. Visit their Web site for further information and online registration.
