New Bolton Center Announces New Lecture Schedule

New Bolton Center has released its “First Tuesday Lecture Series schedule through February 2013. The First Tuesdays Lecture Series offers an open lecture, at no charge, the first Tuesday of each month at University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine (Penn Vet) New Bolton Center.

This popular series of one-hour lectures begins its third year this spring, covering a wide range of veterinary subjects of relevance to the horse owner and caregiver. All are presented by New Bolton Center clinicians with expertise in the subject. Each presentation is followed by a lively question and answer session.

Says Rose Nolen-Walston, DVM, organizer of the series, “We want New Bolton Center to be a resource for the local equine community and this program is one way to be that resource. The First Tuesday Lecture series has allowed New Bolton Center clinicians and researchers to share our knowledge, including the newest advances. The growing popularity of the talks has confirmed our belief that the horse-loving community is eager for this type of information. We always welcome input on topics that will be of interest.”
