The First Tuesday Lecture Series is an opportunity for Penn Vet's New Bolton Center to share new advances and cutting-edge information with the local horse community. The one-hour lectures, held once a month, will cover a wide range of veterinary subjects, each one of relevance to the horse owner and caregiver. All will be presented by New Bolton Center clinicians, with expertise in the subject. Although the lectures are free, seating is limited so pre-registration is suggested.

The ACFB has a real need for professionals raising awareness to the issue of hunger in our state. Please wear closed-toe shoes and comfortable clothing. Following our work at the ACFB, we will be having a social hour and networking gathering at Apres Diem in Midtown (931 Monroe Drive).
