2019 CE Lectures Series

On June 1st, Upstate Veterinary Specialties hosted its 2019 Continuing Education Lecture Series at the Hilton Garden Inn, in Troy, NY. This great program provided New York State approved continuing education to our referral network. As experts in their respective fields, our staff presented on various industry topics and prepared their presentations through education, research, and professional experience.

Lectures in our doctor track included:

Christa Corbett, DVM, MS, DACVO: All You Ever Wanted to Know (and more!) About the Canine Cornea

Laura Krzykowski, DVM, DACVIM (Neurology/Neurosurgery): Updates in Seizure Management and Brain Tumor Treatment

Joseph Palamara, DVM, DACVS-SA: The Dyspneic Dog

Lectures in our technician track included:

Katie Bott, LVT Emergency Department: Triage Talk: How to Identify Urgent Situations and Improve Communications During an Emergency

Laura Perez, DVM, CVA, CCRT & Jennifer Wolfe, LVT, CCPR: Basic Rehabilitation for the Neurologic Patient



The PowerPoint presentations are available through Slide Share by visiting the UVS Continuing Education page.  Our staff truly enjoyed meeting, interacting with, and exchanging ideas with their colleagues. We are looking forward to the event again, next year!

We’d also like to take the time to thank our generous sponsors for the event. Without their contribution, we wouldn’t have able to host such a successful event. Thank you!
