May is Mental Health Awareness Month, which served as an excellent opportunity for Purdue Veterinary Medicine to shed light on an incredibly important, yet difficult topic to address in the veterinary profession. The college hosted a virtual panel discussion on Tuesday, May 19, to provide an outlet for veterinary professionals to candidly talk about how they are addressing mental health during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The virtual Graduation Celebration hosted by the Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine in lieu of traditional commencement exercises included the recognition of recipients of faculty, resident, intern, and student awards. Typically the awards would have been presented at the Graduation Gala on the eve of commencement, but due to the changes necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic, the award recognition was incorporated into the college’s virtual celebration that was streamed via Facebook Live Saturday, May 16.
In a normal year, Purdue Veterinary Medicine’s traditional Oath Ceremony would follow the Purdue University commencement exercises in the Elliott Hall of Music, yet this year’s far-from-normal events induced by the COVID-19 pandemic necessitated a heroic effort to develop alternate plans. Purdue University converted its beloved traditional commencement ceremony into an on-demand virtual presentation, which included the reading of the names of DVM and Veterinary Nursing graduates.
Just recently Purdue Veterinary Medicine‘s Dr. Candace Croney was interviewed by Jim Richards on Newstalk 1010 about how COVID-19 is affecting animals and pets. You can listen along at iHeartRadio.
