The year 2017 marks TVMDL’s 50th anniversary of service to the veterinary community, citizens of Texas and the nation. This Golden Anniversary is celebrated on a new website, http://agrilife.org/tvmdl50/ that highlights the impact TVMDL has had on protecting animal and human health for 50 years. We encourage you to browse the website and learn all about TVMDL’s rich history.
This year TVMDL is also celebrating a new home for TVMDL College Station lab and agency headquarters at 483 Agronomy Road, College Station, Texas. We hope you’ll plan to join us at the Grand Opening of our new laboratory on April 19, 2017 at 2:00 p.m.
As part of the yearlong celebration, we have various events planned such as the Inaugural Dr. William & Catie Sippel Lecture Series that will kick off May 3, 2017 in College Station, Texas with a lecture titled, “Evolving opportunities for diagnostic medicine in progressive, precision animal agriculture”, from Dr. Pat Halbur, Executive Director, Iowa State University Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory.
