Attendees at AVMA Convention 2017 will have the opportunity to join renowned paleontologist Paul Sereno at AVMA Convention 2017 for a keynote presentation exploring how the history of the animal world relates to modern veterinary medicine. His keynote brunch address, “Insights for One Health from Centuries and Millennia Past,” promises to bring a modern angle to ancient history.
New developments in genetics, ancient DNA, fossil discoveries, and research into human development are changing our perspective on what actually happened in the past. From human-animal health crises to the timing of evolutionary changes, Sereno will bring ancient history alive to inform our current veterinary work.
Paul Sereno is a National Geographic Explorer and internationally acclaimed professor at the University of Chicago who has explored the Sahara and Gobi Deserts, India’s Thar Desert and remote valleys in Tibet. His work is an exciting blend of art, history and science wrapped in adventure, and we’re excited that he has agreed to give this keynote presentation at AVMA Convention 2017.
The keynote brunch will take place on Saturday, July 22, at 10 A.M., and is open to full convention registrants including veterinarians, technicians, practice staff and students. Guests and exhibitors are invited to attend a viewing party in an alternate location.
