Wound Care in the Equine Patient to be Covered in New Bolton Center Lecture

On April 5 the University of Pennsylvania's (UPenn) New Bolton Center will present "Wound Care: The Big, the Bad, the Ugly." The lecture is part of the First Tuesdays Lecture Series at UPenn's School of Veterinary Medicine at New Bolton Center. The series offers the public open lectures on equine topics, at no charge, the first Tuesday of each month.

The April 5 lecture will be presented by David Levine, DVM, Dipl. ACVS, a lecturer and surgeon at New Bolton Center in Kennett Square, Pa. Levine will address the basic physiology of wounds and how they heal, followed by a discussion of multiple types of wound cases.

At the conclusion of the lecture, Alex Brown, author of Greatness and Goodness: Barbaro and His Legacy, will say a few remarks and offer signed copies of the volume, which sells for $29.99. For each book purchased, Brown will donate $10 to the Laminitis Research Fund at Penn Vet.

The First Tuesday lecture series offers New Bolton Center an opportunity to share current information on topics of interest and relevance to horse owners and caregivers throughout the region. The series of one-hour lectures covers a wide range of veterinary subjects, each presented by a New Bolton Center clinician with expertise in the subject.
