While everyone has heard the phrase, "knowledge is power," it's not always easy to find the knowledge one seeks. But when it comes to learning more about the latest in equine veterinary medicine, people need look no further than Virginia Tech's Marion duPont Scott Equine Medical Center, where faculty members are available to speak to local groups about a variety of horse health topics.

Equine medical center faculty can offer talks about surgery, colic, cardiac problems, first aid, pain management, bandaging, EHV-1, parasites, tumors, lameness, and many other subjects in a way that makes the sometimes complex world of modern veterinary medicine easily understandable for all. There is no charge for these presentations.

“The equine medical center is fortunate to have faculty members with outstanding credentials,” noted Dr. Nat White, Diplomate ACVS, Jean Ellen Shehan Professor, and Marion duPont Scott Equine Medical Center director. “Each of our board-certified faculty members possesses a remarkable range of knowledge, experience, and expertise, which they are more than willing to share. We are very pleased to be able to offer this tremendous educational resource to the equine community,” he added.
