Leadership Development


1. VMD-PhD Combining Degree Studies

Rabbits help lower cholesterol. Cats may lead to a breakthrough in the AIDS epidemic. And dogs have taught doctors new heart surgery techniques. Even lobsters help scientists understand Parkinson's disease. Since the turn of the century, animal research has helped wipe out such diseases as smallpox and polio while increasing the human lifespan by 28 years. Whether it's fighting epilepsy, finding a cure for Alzheimer's or making progress in brain and spinal cord trauma, the link between human health and animal health is absolutely crucial.

The University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine provides an outstanding environment for the training of future veterinary scientists through our combined VMD-PhD program. It's an excellent way for you to continue your education while impacting the future of medicine for humans and all species.

Who knows what today's research could do for future generations? Find out more by visiting www.PennVetPhD.org


2. "Hunger Knows No Bounds" Ag Week Kick Off

Parents in the Midwest who give their children their portion of dinner. The orphan in India sitting on a busy street begging for money to buy a meal. Two different scenarios. Two stories from our world. Two situations that show… Hunger Knows No Bounds.

The Purdue Ag Week Task Force invites you to join us on April 8th at 5:30 PM in Mackey Arena to engage in a dialogue about the global hunger crisis. (Enter through the North Plaza entrance.)
