Camelid Symposium

UC Davis Camelid Symposium

UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine

Saturday-Sunday, January 17-18, 2015


Sponsored by:  Calpaca
Hosted by:  UC Davis Camelid Medicine Club


This Symposium is Dedicated to the Memory of

Dr. Murray E. Fowler

1928-2014


On May 18, 2014, the camelid community and the entire veterinary profession lost a very special person. Dr. Murray Fowler was a pioneer in the study of camelids and development of camelid medicine. He applied that same passion to a phenomenal number of diverse species, learning and teaching others at every opportunity. His interests, energy and compassion knew no bounds. We will miss him.

Speakers:  We are happy to announce that Dr. Jane Vaughan from Australia will be back this year.  We are also pleased to have both Dr. Tim Holt and Dr. Stacey Byers joining us from Colorado State University.  Rounding out the schedule will be local and UCD speakers:  Dr. Danny Mora, Dr. Michelle Ing, Dr. Julie Dechant, Dr. David Maggs, Dr. Mary Lassaline, Dr. Anita Varga and Dr. Adrianne Bautista.
