Event description

Description

The DCBC organizes a business event for members and interested NON members of the DCBC at the University of Calgary. No one less than Professor Herman Barkema is speaking at this event.

Dr. Herman Barkema completed his DVM degree at Utrecht University, The Netherlands, in 1988. He spent 2½ years as manager of a large dairy and beef herd in Costa Rica, then taught bovine herd health at Utrecht University and worked as an epidemiologist for the Dutch Animal Health Service while completing his PhD. In 2001, Dr. Barkema moved to the University of PEI. He subsequently moved to the University of Calgary, where he founded the Department of Production Animal Health of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine. He currently is Professor in Epidemiology of Infectious Diseases at UCVM, with a joint appointment in the Department of Community Health Sciences of the Faculty of Medicine. Dr. Barkema three years ago became an NSERC Industrial Research in Infectious Diseases of Dairy Cattle. He is also a Guest Professor at Ghent University (Belgium). Dr. Barkema’s research program focuses on prevention and control of diseases in cattle herds. He has published more than 250 scientific manuscripts and book chapters, and has lectured all over the world. He was the leader of the Alberta Inflammatory Bowel Disease Consortium, and currently leads the University of Calgary Biostatistics Centre, the Clinical Research Unit in the Cumming School of Medicine, the Environment research theme in the Canadian Bovine Mastitis and Milk Quality Research Network, the Technical Committee of the Canadian Johne’s Disease Initiative, and the Alberta Johne’s Disease Initiative.

After his presentation, which starts at 7.15 PM, we are invited for a big tour through the clinical Skills Building where we can see many different animals. We will get lots of information from the veterinary researchers who work at The Faculty, for example about anatomy of different animals and their specialties.

You are all invited to join us at this event at October 19th, were we will start at 5.30 PM with network opportunities at the Ceili's pub in Royal Oak, with cash bar and some snacks provided by the DCBC board. Just before 7 PM we'll go to the University of Calgary Faculty of Veterinary Medicine Clinical Skills Building, 11877 85 Street Northwest which is a 5-10 minute drive from the pub.
